Strong form in defeat in Graded novice chases last term and justified 11-8 favouritism in clearcut fashion in four-runner Listed event at Carlisle (2m4f, soft; jumped well) in November; that saw him favourite for Grade 3 handicap at Cheltenham but he was soon struggling with the fences; has cheekpieces today and the earlier positive impression cannot be forgotten.

Strong form in defeat in Graded novice chases last term, including when he nearly caught Monmiral for second off level weights over C&D on soft on New Year's Day (jumping was not the best though); justified 11-8 favouritism in clearcut fashion in four-runner Listed event at Carlisle (2m4f, soft; jumped well) six weeks ago and returns to a handicap off what looks a good mark.

Strong form in defeat in Graded novice chases last season (including on soft), runner-up in a Grade 2 at Ayr (2m4f, good) in April when last seen; reappears with trainer among the winners and he's firmly in calculations.

Started brightly with two wins over fences and highly tried since, beaten nearly 4l by Balco Coastal in the Scilly Isles at Sandown then never a serious threat behind The Real Whacker at the Cheltenham Festival; today's assignment is easier and he's very much in the mix.
