Failed to finish on two most recent starts including when pulled up over an extended 2m4f in a handicap hurdle at Newbury (good-to-soft) in March. Probably best watched back over fences as he chases a first win in well over four years.
Beaten 22L when sixth in a handicap chase over an extended 2m4f at Kempton (good) last November. Absent since and market support would be notable back down to his last winning mark on seasonal debut.
Winner of this race off a 4lb lower mark on good ground 12 months ago. Successful at Uttoxeter (3m, good) since and is likely to have improved for last months return to action when 41L third of four at Perth (3m, heavy).
Placed on all three starts since winning over 2m5f at Fakenham (good-to-soft) in December. Beaten 8L when runner-up at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) in February on his most recent start and he is of interest on seasonal debut.
Winner over an extended 2m4f at Musselburgh (good) in January. Finished third on both starts since including in first time blinkers (replaced with cheekpieces worn previously) when beaten 8¾L over an extended 2m5f at Wetherby (good) in March.
Double his career tally when successful by 5L in a 3m handicap chase at Warwick (good) in April. Raised 9lb for that effort and is one to note on seasonal debut with promising amateur jockey on board that day taking the ride once more.
Successful by 7L over 2m1f in a novices' handicap chase on good ground here in August. Fair fifth over the same C&D the following month and is an interesting runner stepping up in distance.
Pulled up on his last four starts for previous stable including over fences at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in March. Debuts for a new yard off a mark 17lb lower than for his most recent victory.
