Simple task at Carlisle in March and then right up to his best when third in Aintree Foxhunters. Disappointed when pulled up at Fairyhouse last time but one of the few serious players here and has to be respected.
Made heavy weather of winning three runner race at Wincanton last time following placed efforts under today's rider. Clearly not the force of old but still a serious player in this contest.
Good ground win at Taunton in the winter but not in the same form when well beaten fourth at Exeter since and overall form does need improving on.
Won the Aintree Foxhunters in 2017 but long absence after that and has looked a light of former days in three runs back Connections need the first time cheek pieces to bring him back to form.
