Return to similar trips to today's has helped and he took advantage of a good mark at Fontwell in October before close up in better races than this at Cheltenham (2m; good and good to soft); lesser run after but had stiffish task on soft at Newbury latest and now below latest winning mark; claims.

Buoyed by his return to winning ways over hurdles in May, he was back from his summer break with a comfortable chase win at Fontwell (2m2f, good) in October; the handicapper has looked in charge on his two outings since, though.

Convincing winner from one other finisher on chase debut at Fontwell (2m2f, soft) last March and he ran well for a long way back over fences in a better race than this at Newbury last month; can race freely so this tighter track should suit; every chance.

Kept on strongly to make winning chase debut at Fontwell (2m2f, soft) in March; found one too good when odds-on for small-field Hexham hurdle later that month and moves up in grade for today's seasonal debut but probably still has potential.

Fair ex-Irish scorer who has taken his form up a level for his current yard, easily landing 2m2f Fontwell handicap on his chase debut in March before recording a good second in 2m Hexham handicap hurdle; he looks to have more to offer returned to fences, especially over this longer trip; big shout.

Won 1m7f maiden hurdle for Gavin Cromwell last spring; diverted to the Flat in the summer but fair effort back hurdling at Market Rasen in August; sold £16,000 since; hard to assess on handicap/chase debut but dam won twice over fences (2m4f) so he could make a chaser; first-time tongue-tie.
