Well suited by sharp/flat tracks, as his C&D win (on good ground) last May confirms; Cheltenham wasn't his thing in November and he duly bounced back at Ludlow (3m, soft; close second) last month; solid claims in another favourable scenario.

Dropped away after forcing the pace at Cheltenham a month ago when perhaps in need of the run; struck form in the spring, winning over C&D (good to soft) and following up at Kempton (good); 8lb higher than latterly but only a 7yo with just 11 runs behind him; considered.

Form & Verdict

Earned a silver medal at Aintree (2m4f) last month without proving a match for the winner; only 1-12 over fences but nicely weighted and this step back up in trip looks a plus, having gained the chase win over 3m.

Sole win from 13 chases came in a three-runner race last February; had wind surgery in July and his four runs since have not seen him in top form, the latest being his first hurdle race since March 2021; it's possible to argue that this drop back from about 3m may help, and he's edging down the weights, but others are more persuasive.

Pulled up on reappearance at Wincanton (bled from the nose) but he has a poor record when fresh and can be expected to leave that run well behind; fine second behind the well-handicapped Kitty's Light in the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown (3m4f, good to soft) in April and he's also effective on soft going; this course should suit his prominent style; interesting contender.
