Smart handicap chaser when with Philip Hobbs (rated 159 at his peak); off the mark in this sphere for his new yard at second attempt. Had to work a little harder than the odds (11-10) suggest to win last time (held on well); leading player.
Useful handicap chaser when with Ben Pauling (rated 139 at his peak); 4-6 in point-to-points. Scored his first success (third attempt) in this discipline in a match at Fakenham last time (easy task); this will prove to be a stiffer test.
Third to Arthur's Secret in this last year he's 3-8 in point-to-points (over a year since he won in that sphere). Finally got off the mark under Rules last time at Fontwell (3m2f) in a weak novices' hunter chase; this is far tougher.
Stable won this last year and this former useful sort for Gordon Elliott (former Coral Cup winner) gives them another good chance. Only effort for Olly Murphy failed to encourage; 2-4 in point-to-points since last seen under Rules.
