Charlie Longsdon’s gelding finished an isolated, and fortunate, second at Worcester on his last start but the easy winner that day has won at Stratford since.

The son of Oscar has been dropped 3lb in the weights for his troubles and has been a model of consistency since switching to this yard, having not finished outside the first three in five starts.

He’s back down in trip a tad but has Irish form over hurdles at this distance so can’t be discounted.

NB: LOW PROFILE | 5:00pm Great Character Handicap Hurdle

After a hugely progressive effort at the second time of asking over hurdles, Mark Walford’s gelding contests an opening handicap mark of 105 but he’s far less exposed than most in this field.

His pedigree and flat form suggests he’ll cope with this step-up in trip with Jamie Hamilton jocked back up.

He finished fourth in a novice at this track back in August with the form being boosted subsequently, while he reversed the form with Saturday opponent Art Man at Hexham thereafter.
