Won over fences here (2m, heavy) during the winter and was clear second over C&D (heavy) when switched back to hurdling in February; won't mind if the ground starts to dry out today and probably won't be far away.

Opened his chase account at Chepstow (2m, heavy) in December; couple of second-place finishes at same venue since, latest returned to hurdles; generally consistent but loses points for having the worst strike-rate in this field; overall record is just 3-34.

Quirky customer who has a very mixed record this season, and ran in snatches before eventually keeping on strongly to score over C&D (soft) last month; 3lb rise ought to be manageable but he's not an easy one to predict.
