First (good to soft) and second (soft) in two 3m1f chases in January but form has cooled and he found no rhythm last time at Carlisle; even if back on song, he'll be into unknown territory a long way from home here.

Became disappointing for Gary Moore last season (often racing lazily) and was safely held on stable debut at Huntingdon (3m1f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) in November; subsequent wind op might have helped but others look less risky.
