Well beaten in three novice hurdles at around 2m4f; workable mark for his chase debut and related to several chase winners; may be able to do better but has that to prove; hood now accompanies tongue-tie.

17-race maiden; best effort since a lengthy absence was when second, trying to make all, at Kelso (2m1f, soft) in March; a repeat of that would give him a chance but recent form has been below par and he has it to prove over this far.

Yet to score over fences but he got back on track in a change of headgear (visor replaced cheekpieces) when second of nine in 2m4f handicap chase at Musselburgh three weeks ago; he needs to back it up with visor again sported.

Now 8lb lower than when going close at Newcastle (2m4f, good) last May and he's also effective on soft ground; however, his subsequent form hasn't come up to scratch and a revival is needed in a chance of headgear.

Has run in just one Irish point, a bumper and two novice hurdles; made most and kept on well when beaten a neck in six-runner race at Leicester (1m7f, heavy) latest; that suggested he'd be suited by further and there should be enough stamina in the pedigree, so he's one to note on handicap debut.

Without a win since 2021 and evidently not as good as he was but ran big race in defeat at Hexham (1m7f, soft) three weeks ago and today's better ground is probably in his favour; no surprise if he features.
