Returns to hurdling having failed to convince over fences in five attempts; showed better than claiming form when last seen over the smaller objects in April 2019; classiest entrant who should go well.
Won a small field maiden hurdle over course and distance at this meeting last year on good to soft; returned after long break to run reasonably well at Leicester in January; entitled to be fitter here and leading chance.
Struggled a little after showing ability on bumper debut last March including in only appearance over hurdles in October; difficult to assess after absence but more evidence of hurdling ability needed.
Dual Flat winner in 2018; has not shown enough ability over hurdles to suggest he is capable of winning a race even at this lowly level; evidence would suggest another double digit defeat is in the offing.
No wins or places in 13 starts on the Flat suggest he may struggle on hurdles debut especially when considering his pedigree; surely just making up the numbers.
Swaffham Bulbeck (4/7), Coole Well (13/8), All About You (16/1), Highwayman (20/1), Jailbreak (50/1)
