Multiple point-to-point winner, most recently last month, finished fifth in a Cheltenham hunter chase 18 days ago, with this one arguably looking a bit weaker on paper. Entitled to his claims.
All six point-to-point wins have come on good ground. Hasn't been at his best in that sphere lately and was pulled up at Leicester in March in one of these, perhaps the better ground can assist.
Failed to make an impact for Dan Skelton and tailed off at Towcester this month on hunter chase bow, has talent but chance is taken on him showcasing it, market may tell more.
Four years since he was spotted under rules last, has won in point-to-point there in the intervening time but form there has been patch recently and others preferred.
Useful winning form in point-to-points and comes here on the back of a wind operation, should be in the firing line.
