Put a run of four pulled up efforts behind him when 41L seventh in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Sandown (soft) last month. Visor worn for the first time on return to fences.
Unseated rider at the first in a handicap chase over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow (good-to-soft) last time out. Previously struggled at Ludlow and others hold stronger claims.
Placed on two most recent starts including over an extended 1m7f at Catterick (soft) early last month. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Course winner struggled when 22L seventh over 2m3f at Haydock (good) in a handicap chase last May. Unraced since and races off a mark 5lb lower than for his most recent success.
Still going well when unseating at the 11th in a 2m4f handicap chase at Wincanton (good) earlier this month. Previously a promising fifth on debut for this yard and is of interest once more.
Victorious in a heavy ground 2m4f handicap chase at Uttoxeter in December. Disappointing on sole completed start since 15L second at Ludlow (2m4f, good) the following month.
11 race maiden was beaten just a head when runner-up in a soft ground 2m handicap chase at Ffos Las last weekend. Races off the same mark here and is a notable runner in this event.
Four time chase winner including over 2m at Kempton (soft) 13 months ago. Disappointing on two most recent starts and races off a mark 9lb lower than for that Kempton victory.
