This six-year-old gelding has been in flying form this season, winning three of his four starts since October, culminating with a determined win in a similar grade three contest at Ascot last time out.
He also has course experience, winning here on the final day of the jumps season. However, he must shoulder a 5lb penalty and top weight for his win last time out. But carrying top weight has proved to be no problem before.
