Lightly raced overall and never beyond 3m2f but his good third of 13 at Chepstow (3m, heavy) last time suggested he's worth the attempt; headgear is also given a go.

Improved to win North Wales National at Bangor (3m5f, heavy) in first-time cheekpieces in February and was in front before unseating rider at third-last fence in West Wales National at Ffos Las (3m4f, heavy) last month; also has winning form on good ground, and evidently in very good nick.

Form & Verdict

2-8 over fences; his win in October was over hurdles and although he returned to chasing with a second of six at Aintree (3m1f, soft) nine weeks ago, he needs to build on that, this sort of trip is unknown territory and he has a bit more to prove on heavy going.

More to prove on heavy going; won over hurdles in November and made his breakthrough over fences (seventh attempt) when upped to 3m5f on soft at Lingfield 15 days ago, with the front two 16l clear; back up 6lb but may well have more to offer with these sort of stamina tests.

Dual winner at Lingfield this season, latterly in 3m5f chase on soft ground in February; got very tired on heavy ground at Bangor (3m5f) a fortnight later but certainly didn't run badly there, and the quicker conditions here ought to suit him better.

Pulled up all three starts this term, including twice at Chepstow where his previous good record included an authoritative win over 3m7f (soft) last March; had wind surgery (his second) before penultimate start; latest was the Welsh National when 8lb out of the handicap, so this is a big step down in class.
