11st 7lb

J: Danny Gilligan

T: Gordon Elliott

Has raced mainly on soft/heavy; disappointing when only 10-1 in the 2023 Champion Bumper; won easily at Fairyhouse (2m7f) on second hurdles start and has posted good efforts, including in Grade 2 behind subsequent Supreme winner Slade Steel, at Navan (2m4f/2m) since; possibilities provided he remains in form back at Cheltenham.
