Very smart chaser who showed up well for a long way in last year’s National but had started to lose his place when falling heavily four out. Won handicap at Chepstow and Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby but was well below form in the Betfair Chase at Haydock and Becher Chase at Aintree earlier this season. Got back on track in no uncertain terms when winning listed event at Ascot in February but his Aintree record inspires little confidence despite him looking well handicapped.
