His sixth in the Eider was his best run since rejoining this yard from a spell in Ireland; didn't run too badly last time at Perth (3m) and entitled to be competitive off this low a mark.

Bit disappointing over fences since finishing sixth in the Eider (4m1f, heavy) in February; well beaten on all three starts over hurdles in 2020 but has improved since then; could go well off this good mark with blinkers tried.

Won two staying hurdles on good and good to soft ground in late 2022; hasn't got anything going since a respectable first run over fences in November but the ability is lurking and he's had a wind operation.

Won 2m7f/3m handicap hurdles on goodish ground in late 2022; made pleasing start to chasing career when second at Ludlow (3m1f, good to soft) last November but well held since, latterly behind Shot Boii at Hereford; cheekpieces added and they may help.

Modest maiden over hurdles but he's very well bred and there were positives to take from chase debut at Stratford (2m6f, good) when beaten 11l; can win races off this mark.

Has yet to get his head in front but placed in bumpers and hurdles (1m7f-3m) and fully entitled to make a better chaser, in keeping with so many from his yard; a good stamina test is probably what he needs.

Excellent strike-rate of 5-13 over fences and ran out a 2l winner from Puddlesinthepark over C&D 16 days ago (good; raced prominently); something similar will see him bang there once more, even off 5lb higher.

Both chase wins have come on good ground here, over 2m and 3m2f; however, doesn't return in much form and his second two runs back amounts to precious little; 4lb out of the weights.

Both chase wins have come on good ground at Newton Abbot, over 2m and 3m2f; 4lb out of the weights here but he was even worse off when a remote second on his return from a break at Fakenham; difficult to know what form he's in at the minute.

Recorded a 40-1 success at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) last May; far from consistent otherwise in the last two years and has been absent since August; nearly a stone out of the handicap on return to action and is not a solid option.
