Won similar event at Kelso (2m1f, soft) in October but is error-prone; spoiled his chance with bad mistake two out over C&D last time; had wind surgery (his second) since.

J: Tom Midgley

T: Chris Grant

Reportedly aided by first-time cheekpieces when battling on well to open account at Kelso (2m1f, soft) in October, his sixth start over fences; not one to rely upon heavily but can be excused last month's Doncaster defeat (always on back foot after bad jumping error at first fence).

Encouraging fourth here (3m, good to soft) last November on second chase start when not seeing out the trip; below par at Wincanton since but he seems to like it here and his hurdle win came at this venue (2m, heavy); could bounce back with a big run now returned to Exeter.

Held narrow lead before last-flight fall at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in April 2023 and is now 6lb below that mark; made low-key return from 13-month absence when always behind at Perth five weeks ago but his usual cheekpieces are back on today and that recent outing might have done him good.

Just 1-17 over hurdles but his win came off this mark at Leicester and he had a narrow lead when falling at the last at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in his final run last spring; returns after 13 months off but yard is in decent form and he needs watching in market.
