Arrives for his debut in this sphere with a patchy CV over hurdles, but his best form would entitled him to respect from this mark. Interesting.
1-15 over fences, having scored two starts ago at Fontwell, when 8lb lower. Another good effort when beaten 1L from 1lb lower over C&D last time. Should be in the mix.
Drops 3lb for this chase debut. Was not devoid of promise over hurdles, but others make greater appeal.
0-11 under rules; conditions and trip no problem, but looking exposed and probably has each-way claims at best.
Scored at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) in first-time tongue-tie in June, when 4lb lower. Has bettered that in defeat once since, but looks up against it for the win from this mark unless he can improve.
Won two of his 12 point-to-points, but rules form not encouraging. Others preferred.
Went close over extended 2m at Newton Abbot in July. Good effort over C&D last time, when 5L third from 1lb higher. Likely to be involved from 1lb 'wrong'.
