Consistent pointer, winning three times, and beaten by a good horse in the latest; probably unwise to knock him for his no-show on the Banks course at Punchestown last time out.

Not far off the pace when falling four out at Limerick in December, in a hunter chase in which Casey West finished second; won twice during the autumn points campaign (beat Wine An Dine by 5l at Tattersalls); scored again at Oldtown in January; beaten by a good horse at Kirkistown last time.

Decent sort in point-to-points was recording third win when beating a useful sort in Oldtown winners' contest in February; equally good form when second in Kirkistown open last month; faller on the track at Limerick over Christmas but has to be considered here.

Showed improved form lately to win a maiden and winners' point on heavy ground; was previously 3rd in a maiden hunters chase but is probably a better horse now; a player with cheekpieces on.
