Twice down the field on AW towards end of last year but hurdling is more his game and he's on a competitive mark judged on last season's exploits in juvenile races; could have a part to play now back in this sphere.

Sole win was over hurdles last December; vast majority of Flat runs have been over 1m or shorter and well beaten when trying 1m2f here on latest outing but that was after eight months off; now tries 1m4f and although he has a fair bit to prove in this sphere, a case could be argued.

Didn't jump with fluency when tailed off at Newcastle in November on his second chase start and returned to form with a win when back over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) three weeks ago; this unexposed 7yo is just 3lb higher today and could play a leading role once more.
