2-6 over fences; has been contesting strong handicaps and a repeat of his third in Doncaster's Great Yorkshire (3m, good) would see him on the scene; soft ground is a cause for concern, however.

Won twice for Gordon Elliott and had done well on his three Irish starts for Cian Collins, notably when beating subsequent Fairyhouse handicap winner Captains Nephew in a Down Royal novice event in January; struggled in the Red Rum at Aintree; stamina could be an issue, best form has been at around 2m.

Good second at Wetherby in October (2m3f, good) and unlucky not to follow up at Hereford two runs back (2m, good to soft; clear after last when unseated rider after saddle slipped); can jump left so this track should suit; a possible unless the going turns soft.

Talented on his day and he was having one of them at Hereford recently (2m, good to soft) when clear of his rivals until his saddle slipped and he unseated at the last; back up 4lb in a tougher race and has something to prove on this track, having been pulled up in handicaps at this meeting for the last two years, over hurdles and in this race.

Landed a hat-trick over shorter trips last winter (the second leg was here) and has also scored at Cartmel (2m5f) in July and Catterick (2m3f) in November on his last two outings; up another 4lb and in class but he's going great guns.
