Maintained his 100% record over fences (2-2) with an exercise gallop at Catterick (2m3f+, good); still has scope to improve his fencing technique but will be learning with each and every racecourse appearance; live contender.
Prominent when falling at the sixth fence in last week's Grade 1 RSA Chase (Cheltenham); almost certain to force the pace and sets the standard on his return to the scene of his December C&D romp (soft).
Talented hurdler in the 2014/15 season; back from a three-year absence in November and unsurprisingly unable to regain any positive momentum yet; 19L runner up to Bristol De Mai on sole chasing start at Warwick (2m) in November 2015.
PTP winner (March 2017); deliberate over fences under rules (0-2); holds next to no chance whatsoever (barring accidents) against this calibre of opponent.
Marked himself out as a fast improving hurdler last season, comfortably winning the Grade 3 EBF Final at Sandown (2m4f, soft); didn't appear at all comfortable over fences on his belated seasonal reappearance at Ayr in January.
