Likeable stayer who won twice over fences in late 2020; returned from a two-year absence in February and has been very mixed over hurdles either side of a 3m2f win (soft) in March; trip worry back chasing.

W: 12st 2lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 107

Form & Verdict
Unraced in a handicap over hurdles but he's won three from four over fences, all over 3m1f-3m4f at Plumpton; the first win was on good to soft, the three runs since on good; while those performances weren't that fluent, he has shown progressive form; off since November but his chase mark is 5lb higher than today's, so it's not hard to make a case for him.

15th start and first headgear when off the mark in eight-runner handicap over C&D (soft) eight days ago, by 4l after leading five out; has 7lb penalty (he was due to go up only 5lb) but seemed to idle in front and could have more to give with the cheekpieces retained.

Form & Verdict
Inconsistent sort but he won over about 3m2f at Hereford (good to soft) in November and Huntingdon (good) this month; it's possible that changes of headgear sparked something for those wins and he scored by just a nose last time, in last-gasp fashion, but he has to be in calculations.
