Top chaser in his prime; has had some setbacks since latest win in early 2022 (first-time cheekpieces) but he crept into a late third back hurdling at Cheltenham (3m, soft) in November and perhaps heavy ground was just too taxing next time; not ruled out with cheekpieces refitted for the first time this season.
