Lightly raced for an 8yo; point/hurdle winner and returned from an absence to make a successful chase debut over C&D (soft) three weeks ago, which was pretty straightforward from off the pace; up 6lb but that looks very manageable.

Runner-up at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) in March; has done all of his winning with plenty of cut underfoot, but reportedly found the particularly testing ground too extreme at Newcastle (pulled up) last time; competitive mark for first visit to Sedgefield.
