Disappointed last time, looking awkward, but had only just failed to make most at Ludlow prior to that. Respected, but jumping needs work, for all a hood may curb his waywardness.
Beaten a short-head over an extended 2m at Wolverhampton in November but disappointed over hurdles subsequently, and no sign of a revival on last couple of starts on the Flat. Gets another change of headgear here having worn blinkers last time.
Useful maiden when trained in Germany, and won over hurdles at Ludlow in Janurary. Improved further when chasing home Quel Destin in Victor Ludorum at Haydock last time, and likely to have more to offer.
Thriving of late, and is aiming for a C&D hat-trick after landing a pair of 0-115 events here in recent weeks. Latest form is solid, and folly to ignore despite going up in class.
Runner-up in a bumper in October (best of three efforts in that sphere) and decent fourth of nine (beaten 3½L) on hurdling bow. Didn't build on that last time, however, and this looks a tough start in handicaps.
