Finally got off the mark over fences at Haydock (2m4f, soft) in March and he's fine at this trip and on good ground; below best here ten days ago but that was over hurdles; every chance he'll be bang there now back chasing.

J: Jonathan England

Arrives on a hat-trick following recent wins over 3m here (good/soft); he could do with jumping with greater fluency and this drop back in trip may be against him, but he's clearly in top form and has to be respected.

Led close home to win here (2m3f, good) off today's mark in October and put a lesser run behind him when keeping on for respectable fourth here (2m3f, soft) last month; not one to rely upon, though, and would appeal more on better ground.
