Placed in a point and bumper; highly tried in the Grade 2 Persian War on hurdling debut and confirmed himself promising when chasing home a smart prospect (Nicholls trained) over 2m5f here a month ago (soft); has to be involved with something similar here.

Beat 13 rivals to make winning bumper debut at Wetherby (soft) last December and he was found to be suffering from an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on hurdling introduction at Warwick (100-30); might well fare better here but Harry Cobden rides stablemate Tinklers Hill.

Course bumper winner (2m, soft) who was found to have an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on hurdle debut, and left that behind when second at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) in December; that latest form has been franked by the easy winner and he's open to further improvement for the champion trainer.

Well backed and showed much improved form to win a 2m3f maiden at Taunton by some 10l (good to soft); there was little depth to that but the same is true here; every chance of defying a penalty.
