PDF assets 404 in both local valet & Ploi

I have a site with a gallery of PDF's, uploaded through a normal asset field. Unfortunately on the front-end they 404 on correct url request.

        {{item}}
        <a href="{{ file | url }}" target="_blank" class="block transition-all transform-gpu aspect-w-7 aspect-h-10 hover:scale-105 hover:-rotate-3" alt="{{name}}">
            <img src="{{thumbnail}}" alt="" class="object-cover rounded-xl">
            <div>{{name}}</div>
        </a>
        {{/item}}

I've tried {{ file }} {{ file|url }} {{ file | all sorts of things }}

(for reference the thumbnail field above loads fine)

They're being saved to a normal (default) assets container, and appear to be properly linked to on the front end - but they always 404. Other (non-pdf) assets within the same container load fine.

assets/general-assets/2020%20programme.pdf doesn't work but assets/general-assets/jpg-in-same-folder.jpg does

The direct link to the file within the Assets section of the admin does not work, but weirdly the "Download File" link does.

I've spent around 2 hours trying to get this to work - same activity on both my local Valet install, and remote Ploi setup (both are essentially default).

Would really appreciate some help on this one - more than happy to share access to my files.
