Arrives here with a fine strike-rate of 4-7, running out an impressive winner at Haydock on last month’s seasonal/chase debut. Now makes his first jaunt into handicap company, and there’s every chance he is let in lightly off this rating.
Good prospect who won easily on Haydock chase debut/return 25 days ago; the one to beat

Smart novice hurdler last season, and he should have learnt plenty for last month’s chase debut at Cheltenham. Hurdles winner at this venue, so the track clearly holds no fears; provides his yard with a strong hand.
2 novice hurdle wins last term; also a point winner but let down by jumping on chase debut

Chased home the useful Baddesley Knight at Wincanton in November, but he has unseated his rider in his starts either side of that; latest at Haydock in a race won by Precious Cargo. Useful, but those jumping errors provide cause for concern.
Bang there on his Wincanton second in November but unseats either side raise concerns

Remains winless since landing a handicap hurdle at Plumpton back in April 2018; chase record reads 0-4. Went close over this course and distance last time out, but he has received a four-pound rise for that, and this looks a stronger race.
Very good effort when going close in C&D handicap over Christmas; should go well again
