Three-time point winner; excelled himself when fifth over 2m4f at this meeting a year ago and put in fairly good front-running shift when fourth of seven at Exeter (3m, good) recently but will probably be vulnerable at the business end again.

Fair fifth in hunter chase at Cheltenham last May but a bigger performance is needed today and this 10yo has been below par in point-to-points on his last three starts.

Modest rules performer before embarking on a point career that has yielded one win in 13 starts; consistent enough but was behind some of these last time at Kilworthy (did go off at only 9-4; the winner Hearts Corner was odds-on).
