Left previous hurdles efforts well behind when winning a soft ground 2m novice hurdle at Sandown by 2¼L just over a month ago. Penalised for that victory but strong claims of recording a second jumping success.
Handicap hurdle winner off a mark of 122 over an extended 2m5f at Ascot (soft) in December. Shown decent form in handicap events since and is a leading contender on his return to novice company.
Placed second on both starts over hurdles most recently when beaten 7L over an extended 2m7f at Uttoxeter (good) last month. Shaped as if a drop back in distance would suit.
Promising 5L second in a maiden point-to-point over 3m at Lingstown (good) in November. Bought for £48,000 subsequently and interesting to see how he performs on Rules debut.
