Highly productive run of form on the Flat this year from 1m to 1m2f (pretty useful form) and he continued the good work on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, good) where his jumping improved as the race progressed; holes in the form can be picked (runner-up was behind Eagle Prince the time before) but he wasn't remotely troubled; some doubts about him on soft ground.

The drop back in trip isn't an obvious plus but surplus stamina may be no bad thing if there's a strong gallop over this stiff 7f, and he was a close second of 15 under Brodie Hampson at Newmarket (1m1f, good) a fortnight ago; no surprise if he is in the mix.
