Scored at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft; off 1lb lower) on chase debut; has failed to match that form in three runs since but looked a non-stayer over 2m7f latest; drops back in trip.

Made all for a C&D win last June (good) when 4lb lower; similar tactics were employed when he backed that up with a Stratford win (2m1f, good) next time; handicapper has had his measure since but he returned to better form when second over hurdles here (2m, soft) latest; player.

Form & Verdict

Catterick winner in December (2m3f, good to soft) and decent efforts both completed starts since, last time finishing 5l in front of Kankin when runner-up at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft); could go well but unproven on this faster ground.
