Has been running consistently well over fences in novice company where has been facing rivals on unfavourable terms. Only needs to run to a similar level on first venture into a handicap chase to open his account.
Suited by the quick ground and sound gallop when gaining a first chase win at Market Rasen in June. Stable have a 14-53 record here with chasers since 2014 so every chance he can add to that tally with conditions forecast to be favourable.
Triple point-to-point winner who has checked out early on last two outings and is difficult to recommend at this level.
2016 hurdles winner at Cork over 2m has not added to that since. Promise of seconds in beginners chases at Tramore and Wexford have been eclipsed by mediocre efforts since.
Last Year's Winner
Sumkindofking (5/6), Gustave Mahler (7/4), Fair Exchange (17/2), Cotton Jenny (9/1)
