9yo who made it sixth-time lucky over fences when making all over 3m1f here (heavy; third run for current yard) two weeks ago; 6lb higher on this big drop back in trip but he jumped really well last time and still looks feasibly treated on that form; respected.

Big step back in right direction when fourth of 13 at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) on Boxing Day in a first-time tongue-tie on his second stable start; something to find with runner-up Beat The Edge but he could be suited by the stiffer test of stamina on today's deeper ground; one to consider.

Fair third over hurdles last December after a very long absence but he's failed to complete since on his first four chase starts (stable debut last time); a first-time tongue-tie needs to make a big difference.

Form & Verdict
3m hurdle winner who has really got his act together over fences since November, with two C&D wins (soft) followed by a clearcut success over 2m at Ffos Las (heavy) three weeks ago; was unpenalised last time and 10lb rise has now kicked in but he's open to more progress and is a big player again in his bid for a four-timer.

Winner of 3m hurdle; taken time to get his eye in over fences but impressed last week for the second of two front-running wins at Catterick (2m3f, soft) and he runs off the same mark here; goes up 10lb in future so his weights chance is clear providing he copes with the return to 2m.
