Won two good-ground bumpers and a Worcester maiden hurdle (2m7f, good) last season; also a solid effort when runner-up in a Uttoxeter novice on penultimate start (2m, good to soft); well below form on soft ground on handicap debut; off since October, but could go well if ground not too testing.

Form & Verdict
Satisfactory start when runner-up to a penalised rival over C&D last month; will probably need to benefit from that if he's to win this.
