Pulled up early on chase debut after bad mistake caused saddle to slip; major improvement when easy winner at Ayr (2m4f, soft) next time and runner-up has since gone one better; a 9lb rise may not stop this unexposed 7yo.

Won over C&D (good) last April on third chase start before fair third at Hexham (2m4f, good); may be thereabouts if returning in similar form but takes on race-fit rivals and best runs have been on good/good to soft.
