Six time chase winner ran well when 11L second on debut for this yard over this distance at Wetherby (good-to-soft) last time out. Repeat of that should see him play a part in the finish.
Placed on all three starts over fences including when third over 3m1f at Catterick (good) in November. Drop in distance no issue and one for the shortlist once more.
Winner of a novices' handicap chase at Kelso (2m1f, good) in November. Placed since and interesting despite unseating early on at Kelso last time.
Finished runner-up on two most recent starts including in first time cheekpieces (retained) at Kelso (2m1f, good) two weeks ago. Top jockey booked to ride.
Impressive 11L winner over C&D on soft ground last month. Well held 40L third over an extended 2m4f at Cheltenham (good) subsequently and return to this trip should suit.
