C&D winner finished a well beaten 31L ninth in a 2m handicap hurdle at Ayr (good) a month ago when returning from a break. Races off a mark 7lb higher than when winning at Perth last September.
C&D winner on good ground in October and has won on the Flat in Switzerland since. Fair effort at Windsor (1m2f, good) last month when returning from a break and worth a check in the market back over hurdles.
Finished third the last twice including in a valuable handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Haydock (good) three weeks ago. One to note having won over C&D in the past.
Registered his third hurdles victory when winning over C&D on good ground early last month. Raised 5lb for that victory and is chasing a third course success.
Good fourth in a 2m1f handicap hurdle at Cheltenham (good) last month on his first outing since winning at the same venue in November. Interesting off a mark 8lb higher than for his most recent victory.
C&D winner beaten 30L when finishing runner-up in a novice hurdle at Huntingdon (2m, good) last month and has a bit to find with Back On The Lash on their running over this C&D in January.
Wore blinkers (retained) for the first time when finishing fourth in a 2m1f handicap hurdle at Exeter (good) last time out. Market support would be notable on this occasion.
Completed a double when winning a 2m novices' handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (good) last time out. Raised 8lb for that victory and is likely to play a leading role for a top stable.
