Form & Verdict

Mixed form over fences last year and he took his hurdling record to 3-7 with a win when back in this sphere here (2m2f, good to soft) last month; that made it 3-3 here (including on soft) and he should be fine now back up in trip; has to be respected in view of his unbeaten record here.

1-15 over fences but now 4-8 as a hurdler after back-to-back wins at Exeter, over 2m2f on good to soft and more impressive last time over 2m7f on heavy (with Freddie Gingell claiming 5lb); does love Exeter (four wins there) and his only other win came at another right-handed course in Wincanton, so going left-handed here might not be ideal.
