Strong form in defeat in Graded novice chases last term, including when he nearly caught Monmiral for second off level weights over C&D on soft on New Year's Day (jumping was not the best though); justified 11-8 favouritism in clearcut fashion in four-runner Listed event at Carlisle (2m4f, soft; jumped well) six weeks ago and returns to a handicap off what looks a good mark.

Four hurdle wins include both his completions here, at 2m5f on good and soft; won chase debut against his only rival at Newton Abbot (2m5f, heavy) in promising style but it wasn't a noteworthy effort at the weights and he was working hard from a long way out when pulled up at Ludlow since; has a question mark for now.

Developed into useful novice hurdler last season, with the latest of his four wins gained in Class 2 handicap at Kempton (2m5f, soft) in March; not particularly impressive when winning Newton Abbot match (2m5f, heavy) on last month's chasing debut but did what he needed to do, and should build on that success.

Two wins and a second from his three starts here, admittedly as a hurdler and over two years ago; a peak chase performance, such as his 2m1f Kelso win in October, would also see him bang there but he has a bit more to prove judged on his few appearances under rules over this sort of trip.
