A progressive hurdler last season, finishing his year with an excellent 4th in the competitive Martin Pipe Hurdle at the Festival, which was his 2nd run at this track, both of those being very good efforts. He’s a big robust horse who looks all over a chaser. A winner on his debut over the larger obstacles, he then just found the combination of the tight track at Fakenham, and a speedier & rejuvenated Getaway Trump just too good last time. This bigger wide track at Cheltenham will suit as will the step up in trip. He jumps really well and can be expected to take a good deal of beating here.
