Fair Flat-racer; well beaten over hurdles this month but finished well to lead close home on recent chasing debut at Doncaster (2m, good); effectively 5lb higher here but, given the Flat ability, could still have a bigger run in him over fences.

Below par the last twice and particularly disappointing at Taunton last month when making it 0-10; however, perhaps the first-time hood will help and a case can be made judged on his close third at Doncaster (2m, good) last November; also effective on soft ground.

Succumbed only in closing stages when close third on chasing debut at Doncaster (2m, good) in November and a subsequent lesser effort on heavy ground can be overlooked; will be fine on this right-handed track and goes on the shortlist; tongue-tie fitted for first time.

Reportedly aided by first-time cheekpieces when battling on well to open account at Kelso (2m1f, soft) three weeks ago, his sixth start over fences; it's hard to predict whether he'll be in the same mood again here but the forecast quicker ground won't be a problem.

Reportedly aided by first-time cheekpieces when battling on well to open account at Kelso (2m1f, soft) in October, his sixth start over fences; not one to rely upon heavily but can be excused last month's Doncaster defeat (always on back foot after bad jumping error at first fence).

Jumped left throughout and was just a respectable fourth on last month's seasonal/chase debut at Exeter (2m1f, good) but that run might have brought him on, and this switch to a left-handed track is an obvious move.
