Sixth in the Irish Grand National last year, showing he stays 3m5f; good runs at Navan (beating an odds-on chance) and when second to Any Second Now in a Grade 2 event at Fairyhouse prior to failed Grand National bid; worth considering.

No ground problems; good jumper; sixth in the Irish National one year ago showed he stays 3m5f and he's surged back to form for his last two outings; beaten by Any Second Now last time but much better off at the weights today; considered.

33/1
