Sole success came over hurdles; disappointing favourite, having made a bad mistake, at Lingfield returned to chasing last time; current mark gives him a fighting chance granted an error-free round.

Maiden who has bits of encouraging form; some jumping errors contributed to a poor effort last time, taking chase record to 0-3, but has possibilities off a reduced mark if avoiding mistakes.

Won at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) in October but again jumped left when modest third there (2m4f) on latest outing; has scored over this C&D and the return to a left-handed track looks a plus; respected.

Strike-rate remains unimpressive, being just 1-7 in points and 0-11 under rules; return to Ffos Las is one positive, having produced his best chase effort when third (off 7lb higher) over C&D in October.
