Only had the one run over hurdles when making all at Hexham (soft) in the middle of

October.

No winners have come out of that race but he beat them well and is entitled to come on plenty for the run.

Yard has plenty of good horses and he wouldn't be here if they didn't think he was capable of a big run.

Arrives here off the back of a win at Warwick on his hurdles debut 31 days ago (2nd has won since)

Interesting that shrewd connections have decided to pitch him in here and he certainly commands respect.
