Form & Verdict
Very respectable third in Kempton hunter chase (2m4f, good) in April, after a break, and seemingly in process of running well before falling here (2m5f, soft) last month; not sure to benefit from today's drop back in trip but returns to a handicap on a realistic mark.

Did not hit top gear during light campaign last season and was well beaten (albeit on soft ground) last month, after a break; on good mark now and might be seen to better effect if the ground stays good here but others have much less to prove.

Gained four of his nine chase wins at this track; no longer the force of old but, after a nasty experience in October, made pleasing return from break when second to a next-time-out winner at Hereford (2m5f, good) last month; will be fine back at 2m and can cope if the ground softens; high on the list.
