Useful hurdler who remains winless over fences, below the form showed over 21f here when third in French minor event (21.8f) in September. However, arrives here with sound claims on balance of form.

Bumper winner who opened account over hurdles at Ludlow (23.8f) 14 months ago. Improved further in defeat in staying handicaps over the winter and very much the type to do better now chasing.
