Returning from wind surgery when pulled up in a 3m1f novices' handicap chase at Aintree (soft) in October. Worth a check in the market racing off a 2lb lower mark in this contest.
Improved on chase debut effort when finishing 21L fifth in a similar race to this over C&D on soft ground in November. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained on his first outing since wind surgery.
Victorious by 5L in a handicap chase over an extended 3m1f at Haydock (soft) early last month. Disappointing off this 7lb higher mark over 3m2f at Newbury (soft) later that month and is interesting with blinkers tried for the first time.
Pulled up on each of his last two starts including over an extended 2m7f at Huntingdon (good-to-soft) on chase debut last month. Form of that looks strong and he is of interest switched to handicaps with cheekpieces worn for the first time.
Recorded his first victory over fences when taking a 2m5f novices' handicap chase at Ffos Las by ½L on heavy ground just under a month ago. Raised 5lb for that success and he has won over further in the past.
Placed on three of his four starts over fences including when ½L second to Some Can Dance at Ffos Las (2m5f, heavy) last month. Disappointing over hurdles subsequently and is vulnerable to younger rivals.
Multiple point-to-point winner and placed on three of his five Rules starts so far including when beaten a neck over 3m1f at Wincanton (heavy) on seasonal debut last month. Notable runner with cheekpieces tried for the first time.
