Off the mark on fifth run over fences when beating a previous dual winner by over 8l at Lingfield last time (2m, heavy) without coming off the bridle; up 10lb but clearly much improved and looks the one to beat.

0-12 but some fair efforts switched to fences this season, most recently 9l third when dropped to 2m at Ffos Las (heavy); another 2lb lower today and could be involved.

In fine form at present, winning at Bangor in December (2m1f, heavy; by 15l) and off a 10lb higher mark at Ludlow last month (2m, soft; by a short head from two previous winners); up 4lb so on a career-high mark, but should go well again.

Placed in French chases in 2020 and back over fences for first time since when scoring easily by 15l from off the pace at Bangor (2m1f, heavy) in December; 10lb higher in a better race here but highly respected given his dominance last time.

Generally disappointing since winning novice hurdle in early 2022, but seemed to respond quite well to first-time cheekpieces when respectable third over fences at Stratford (2m1f, heavy) last month and may be better suited by soft ground.

Won 2m6f hurdle in his younger days but both chase wins were over 2m (soft and good to soft); hard to gauge his current level as he finished remote on debut for new yard at Aintree and unseated too far out next time to know how he would have fared; at least the drop in grade is welcome.
