Hasn't shown a huge amount so far, but produced a better effort when a 7½L fourth from 1lb higher over hurdles last time. Sneaks into this lower grade for just his second chase start and with 5lb claimed, he could go well.
Consistent performer at lower levels and won two of his last three starts in the spring, both on heavy. 5lb rise for the last of those looks fair, but his record when fresh is a bit offputting.
Sole success came in a soft ground Ludlow maiden hurdle in 2016. Hasn't completed many times since then, and has been well held when doing so. Drops 3lb, but needs a significant revival.
Scored from this mark at Fontwell (3m2f, soft) on Boxing Day. Held since then. Returns from a break and has won when fresh, but at this age he could be forgiven for needing this.
7lb higher than when scoring over hurdles at Warwick (2m3f, good) in May. Not a bad effort on chase debut at Southwell last month. Should appreciate the return to a longer trip. Hood now applied. Interesting.
Won from higher marks than this in 2017 and couldn't be ruled out of the frame based on his reappearance effort at Plumpton. Goes on most ground.
Sole win was four years ago. Each-way claims if back to his form of earlier this year, but has a bit to prove after being pulled up on his reappearance.
