High-class hunter when at his best but that hasn't been for some time; second in Punchestown Champion Hunter Chase in 2022 (to Billaway) and 2023 and also found Billaway too good in this race last year; finished upsides his old rival when well held at this year's Punchestown festival; better for that after four months off but hard to be bullish.

Unplaced favourite at Cheltenham last year having previously looked like a rising star in this category; now 0-6 since that disappointment; second to Its On The Line here 12 months ago, also second to Billaway at Downpatrick last May; two odds-on defeats in autumn points campaign; only slight reassurance form well-beaten fifth behind Its On The Line at Aintree.

Talented hunter was second to Billaway at Punchestown last year before winning well over this trip at Stratford; disappointing favourite for the hunter chase at Cheltenham in March where he weakened to finish seventh of 23 but back to his best when again finding just one too good in Champion Hunter Chase at Punchestown, beaten a length by Cheltenham runner-up Its On The Line; good chance as long as that run hasn't flattened him.
