Winner here on heavy ground last year, he has had just a single opportunity in a handicap when second. He has not really taken to chasing this season so a return to a happy hunting ground over the smaller obstacles has the potential to see him bounce back to form. Underfoot conditions suit well and he’s fitted with headgear which could easily bring out more from him.
