Only two finished when he won over C&D (soft) in March but two of his other runs in cheekpieces last season also put him in the mix; pulled up on reappearance one month ago but may have needed that run.

Reliable; five chase wins (2m4f-3m1f, and regularly placed); ridden out to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; from a 4lb lower mark) in March, and a respectable second at Market Rasen last time; entitled to respect despite the prospect of drying ground posing a slight risk.

Began this year with handicap hurdle wins at Ayr (2m5f, heavy) and Bangor (2m7f, good to soft); not so good with his tongue tied on both starts since, off 220 days before well-beaten favourite on chase debut three weeks ago; should come on from that and is not dismissed yet.

3-14 at this track, with a patchy profile these days at this track and overall; won by 10l over C&D (soft) in March 2022 and has the same mark today but he ran just twice last term and the 352-day absence looks a big negative judged on previous campaigns; usual tongue-tie is removed.

His jumping wasn't always fluent during last season's novice campaign but he won at Ayr (2m5f, soft) in February and comfortably made all at Perth (3m, soft) in April; favourite when well held on reappearance last month but could still have more to offer this term.
