Landed a novice hurdle here (20f) for Jack Barber 12 months ago and ran to similar level when fifth on handicap debut at Chepstow in January. Below that level final 2 starts but been given a chance by the handicapper and must enter calculations on chasing bow for new yard.

Winning pointer who made the frame on several occasions over timber last term and must be taken seriously on chase debut here. Had wind operation.

Not the most consistent but returned with respectable fourth of 11 in handicap hurdle (10/1) at Worcester (16f, heavy) 29 days ago. Tries chasing now but overall profile is rather off-putting.

Left previous form behind to land 2m mares' novice hurdle here at the start of the year. Disappointing both starts since, though, and has something to prove on switch to chasing.

In the frame in both appearances in points and shaped as if better for the run when sixth of 9 in handicap chase at Sedgefield (21.1f, good to soft) on debut over fences 40 days ago. Respected.
