The first race on ITV from Newbury is the Sir Peter O'Sullevan Memorial Handicap Chase and with a decent field going to post we have two each way selections.
Up to mark of 139 he was third in the Listed Sky Bet Handicap Chase and then in the February put up another good effort to finish fifth of 17 at Kempton off 142 and then he finished the season off in the bet365 Gold Cup and was a solid fifth again.
Poor in May 2021 in France and then again on seasonal debut at Chepstow, he then ran in this race last year off 135 and was a good fourth behind winner Rocco.
Another poor run at Kempton at Christmas saw his mark drop to 129 and at Doncaster in January he was a better third in the Listed Sky Bet Handicap Chase.
Dropped another 2lb to 127 he got back to winning ways at Kempton in a good Grade Three Handicap Chase and he then rounded off last season when a strong fifth in the bet365 Gold Cup.
Making his seasonal debut at Chepstow when needing the run as usual he went down to a mark of 132 for the Badger Beers Handicap Chase and chased home Frodon and Lord Accord back in third.
Dropped another 2lb for that win he goes into this off 130 and he has to be in the frame once more.
