Lightly raced 8yo who is one to watch in the betting on his second start back from a long absence, but he was tailed off over hurdles in November on his comeback run and others have far more compelling claims.

Runner-up in three of six French starts, all in the mud; easily best of his three runs in Britain when second of 12 at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) last time, when the hood went on, so he comes into this on a positive note.
