Sound effort when fourth in the Imperial Cup at Sandown when last seen out and dangerous to dismiss despite his absence since March. Good chance on these terms. But does need to prove he can jump a fence.
Winner of a Grade 3 at Newbury before a sterling effort to finish second in the Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham. Chasing debutante but will be hard to overhaul if he copes. The one to beat here.
Limitations exposed when third of six in a Grade 2 hurdle at Haydock last season; didn't fare so well in his only subsequent start though; has a bit to prove on his chasing debut.
Won a couple of novice hurdles before being put in this place by a strong favourite in a three-runner Listed race at Perth in April. Will benefit form the experience but needs to considerably up his game or rely upon the principles under performing.
