Landed a bit of a gamble at Market Rasen (2m4½f, heavy) last month off a mark of 109 over timber, clinging on gamely. Perhaps didn't relish longer trip under 5lb rise next time, now switches to chasing.
Unable to open account in five chase starts last year after joining the Olly Murphy team, though did go close on couple of occasions. Back from a break and handicapper isn't relenting yet.
Couple of good-ground wins in novice hurdles last summer, form tailed off towards the end of the year, returns from a layoff for chase bow and respected for the champion trainer.
