He has been going really well at home but I think you have to be mindful that this is his first run of what will hopefully be a long campaign, and he did come on a fair amount for his opening run last year. But there is no doubt that he didn’t stop progressing last season, and it was heartbreaking to see him denied by such a small margin at the Festival. He is 4lb higher here but I would hope that there is more to come from him and that he can rate higher. He is only seven, after all, and he certainly has a liking for Cheltenham. But I would take into consideration that he will come on for the run, for all that I obviously hope that he runs a big race.
