Progressed well in novice hurdles in 2019/20. Shaped encouragingly on chase bow at Cheltenham on last season's return but ran as if amiss next time and has since left Nigel Twiston-Davies.

THREEUNDERTHRUFIVE boasts a very impressive strike rate, making it 3 wins from 4 starts over fences when landing a Doncaster Grade 2 last month. He can continue the good work, with Mint Condition next best on the back of his latest Haydock effort. Mossy Fen, who is still low-mileage, is also worth noting on debut for Christian Williams.
