Grossly flattered by his proximity when second in an eventful race on seasonal/chase debut at Warwick (3m, soft) in November and was pulled up later that month; needs a good boost from the first-time blinkers here.

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.

Two wins at around 3m over hurdles but he was well held in that sphere four weeks ago and that was after a pulled-up effort on his chase debut at Chepstow (saddle slipped after a bad mistake); has something to prove back over fences and this is a new trip.
