Grade 1 winning novice (Aintree); hasn't quite proved good enough in competitive races (Elite Hurdle (Wincanton), Coral Hurdle (Ascot) and the International Hurdle (Cheltenham)) so far this term; holds a rock-solid chance in a lesser contest.
Posted a career best effort when making most and repelling the challenge of Fin And Game in a 1m7½f Class 3 Haydock handicap (heavy) immediately prior to Christmas; has 8lb to find with We Have A Dream on official ratings.
Lightly-raced hurdler (formerly with Paul Nicholls); made all to win a 2m Musselburgh maiden on stable debut in December, and a fair 5L third to Normal Norman in the Class 2 Hogmaneigh handicap back there on New Years Day; likely pace angle.
Veteran; has twice finished runner-up in this race - to Top Notch (2016) and Cyrus Darius (2017); a lesser light nowadays and continuing to fall in the weights; very surprising if he can get the better of We Have A Dream.
