2019 was a good year for the gelding and he's continued progressing now tried over fences; kept on well to win at Ffos Las in December but now has more to do from a 5lb higher mark. Also has a longer trip to contend with this time.
Proved his worth over hurdles with a win at Cheltenham in December 2018 but not yet set the world alight over fences. Was a well held third last time but still has scope and is a proven stayer. Has to be a threat to the others in this small field.
The one to beat on the official ratings and highly respected given his proximity to the winner in last month's Welsh national at Chepstow. Yet to get going when he fell at Haydock last week but still a player here if unscathed by the experience.
