Placed over 2m4f at Haydock (good) in a valuable handicap chase in April but struggled when 89L eighth over 2m5f at Cartmel (good) in June on his most recent appearance. Worth a check in the market on return from a break.
Followed up a 2m4f handicap chase success at Wincanton (good) in March with a second in a small field 2m5f event at Newton Abbot (good) the following month. Notable runner on seasonal reappearance.
Returning from a break when victorious over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen (good) in September. Disappointed over the same C&D on good-to-soft going three weeks later and races off a mark 4lb higher than for that latest success.
Promising effort in finishing 10½L third in a handicap chase over an extended 2m3f at Wetherby (soft) on seasonal debut early last month. Trip and ground both in his favour here and is one to note with a tongue tie tried for the first time.
Winning for the third time over fences when triumphant by 4½L in a 2m4f handicap chase at Wincanton (good-to-soft) last month. One for the shortlist despite a 6lb rise in the weights.
Good third over an extended 3m6f on good-to-soft ground here in February but finished a well beaten ninth over 3m here the following month. Had wind surgery since and is probably best watched down in trip on seasonal debut.
Finished runner-up on both starts since wind surgery including when 4½L second on chase and seasonal debut over 2m at Chepstow (soft) a month ago. Strong claims with step up in distance likely to suit.
