Grade 1 winning novice chaser (Maghull, Aintree); back to winning ways over hurdles this summer with forceful front-running displays at Newton Abbot (2m5½f-3m2½f); 8lb above his last winning mark, yet remains the horse that the others must beat.
An improving young hurdler; has won twice since April, including when displaying tenacity in spades at Stratford (3m2f, good) in July; held (third) off a similar mark latest, and faces stern competition for the lead from the veteran Sizing Granite.
Effective on a sound surface (good), and has enjoyed a profitable summer period with wins at Worcester (2m7f) and Newton Abbot (3m2½f); sits 8lb higher than when beating Doctor Look Here by 4L in a Class 4 handicap hurdle 33 days ago.
All-out short-head winner at Wincanton (2m4f, good to firm) in May; mixed fortunes since and looks to be in at the deep end here on his first start since wind surgery; won't be missed sporting a plethora of equipment (hood, blinkers and tongue-tie).
