Form & Verdict
0-8 over hurdles but a five-time chase winner with some useful form on his record; ran as though something was a amiss last month, after a break, but will be suited by today's trip/ground and can pose a potent threat if back on song.

Five-time chase winner who is 0-9 over hurdles but one of his four seconds in this discipline was when beaten by the odds-on favourite at Stratford (2m6f, good) two weeks ago; faces nothing of the winner's calibre here; likes good ground; cheekpieces worn for the first time.
