Productive 2023-24 in handicap and hunter chases (3m-3m1f; good-soft), but longstanding plan to land the Aintree Foxhunters' was scuppered at the Canal Turn; spared a hard race, at least, and the presence of Raz De Maree and Ucello II in the pedigree offers some hope for marathon trips.

Very useful handicapper in his prime; nearly 16l behind eased-down winner Gaboriot when fifth at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in March but that run came after a mammoth absence, and he kept on well to win run-of-the-mill contest at Hexham (3m, heavy) last month; today's forecast faster ground will also suit, and he won on his only previous visit to Cartmel; shortlisted.
