A regular feature in the Lake District at Cartmel, with all five of his jump wins coming at his local track; 5lb below his last winning mark (July 2017) and demonstrated that he still retains ability when finishing second at Newcastle (2m) in April.
Mud-lark; runner up off this mark on his most recent C&D start (April 2018); sprung a massive shock on the Flat at Carlisle (2m1f, heavy) a fortnight ago when gamely beating his well backed stablemate Cornerstone Lad.
Has left the care of Nicky Henderson since finishing 11L second to Copper Gone West at Bangor (2m3½f, soft) in March; with a much respected trainer, but possibly sits on a high enough mark for what he has actually achieved.
2018 Galway Festival winner (2m5f, yielding/soft) for previous trainer Henry De Bromhead; joined Donald McCain for £8,500 in September 2018; hasn't set the world alight on these shores yet but is slipping quickly down the weights; blinkers applied.
Revitalised since joining Newcastle handler K.Johnson (211); perhaps his recent Carlisle (3m1f) and Cartmel (3m1½f) wins haven't been the strongest of races for the grade but one can do no more than win impressively; 4lb higher over a shorter trip.
