Has got himself well handicapped and has been narrowly denied in two of his last three races, latterly over this far at Plumpton (soft); drying ground would aid his cause no end and he's hard to rule out.

On the downgrade now and not yet proven over this far but suggested he might be ready to exploit some help from the handicapper when second at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) on Boxing Day; will be fine on today's ground and has a fighting chance if his stamina holds out.

Missed last season; may be best front-running nowadays, as when winning over C&D (good to soft; acts on soft) in December and runner-up in small fields in two of his four completions since; 2m7f may have contributed when below form last time and he should be more potent today.

Had some problems since looking so promising earlier in career; won a 2m4f Kempton handicap last season before finishing a remote fourth in the cross-country race at the Cheltenham Festival; however, he ran a laboured race on hunter chase debut after 286 days away and that leaves him with questions to answer.

On fire when signing off 2021 with a hat-trick in handicap hurdles, the latest off this very mark; made a belated return to fences last time at Taunton (2m7f) and ran okay despite a 21l defeat; this stiffer test should be in his favour.
