All handicaps at longer trips and raced over 1m6f and 2m for this yard, a cosy course win in December coming over the latter distance; hard to know if he still has what it takes over middle distances; sets a puzzle.

Disappointing over hurdles for Paul Nicholls given his Flat ability for Roger Charlton in 2021; solid start for his new yard when fourth in the November handicap at Newcastle five weeks ago; this trip likely to suit and he's one to take seriously.
