Respectable form in novice handicaps over C&D (good to soft) since wearing cheekpieces, finishing second in November then going one better (held on narrowly) in December; remains unexposed over fences and holds strong claims in the retained headgear.

Chase debut; below par over hurdles on final three runs last season but he returns having had wind surgery and on a mark 2lb lower than when winning at Doncaster (2m3f, good) last November; trainer's horses often go well fresh and can make better chasers than hurdlers; not ruled out.
