Finished a good third over 2m7f at Worcester (good) in August. Failed to build on that when pulled up subsequently and not the most consistent performer since joining this yard in the spring.
Making his debut for this yard when the ready winner of a handicap chase over an extended 2m4f at Bangor (good) earlier this month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained as he attempts to defy a 10lb rise in the weights.
Placed off a 6lb higher mark over hurdles at Market Rasen (good) in May. Disappointed twice subsequently however and interesting to see how he fares on his return to chasing.
Point-to-point winner in Ireland and recorded his best effort in four runs over fences when beaten 5L over 2m4f at Warwick (good) last month. Interesting if building on that.
Struggled when finishing 24L 13th in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Huntingdon (good) on debut for this yard earlier this month. Probably best watched on his return to fences.
Placed in a 2m4f handicap chase at Worcester (good) in July but struggled in two subsequent starts and others hold stronger claims.

Beau Sancy (8/11), Djarkevi (11/2), Turban (13/2), Mr Satco (7/1), Norse Light (8/1), Polo The Mumm (12/1), Irish Thistle (16/1)
