Kempton winner in first-time blinkers off an 8lb lower mark three months ago (made all) who should be happier back round an easy, right-handed track; it remains to be seen how two subsequent unseats have effected confidence however.

Won his first two over fences (3m1f, good; 3m2f, good to soft) and just as good in defeat the last twice, perhaps bumping into an improver (unraced since) at Wincanton last time (soft); highly likely to give his running and be involved.

Dual hurdle winner last spring and battled on well for narrow chase success at Plumpton (2m3f, soft) in January; also ran well when close second in small-field contest there three weeks ago but others in this deeper race have more compelling form.

Jumping error contributed to disappointing effort at Chepstow (second chase start) last month when bidding for heavy-ground hat-trick; not fully exposed but needs to avoid mistakes.
