Held in a Flat race at Chelmsford last month but fared better when finishing runner-up at Stratford (2m1f, good) on his return to fences last time. One to note in this contest.
Finished third the last twice including in a three runner contest at Towcester (good-to-firm) last time out. Disappointed that day but of interest back in handicap company.
Struggled when beaten 66L into fourth on his return to fences earlier this month. Interesting to see how he fares off a 4lb lower mark.
Sent off favourite but failed to complete over an extended 2m at Fakenham (good) earlier this month. Interesting if putting in a clear round.
