Winner on debut in France, and 2-2 for Gordon Elliott before his suspension was imposed; odds for Grade 2 Fairyhouse event, but failed by 3l to concede 3lb to the progressive Jeff Kidder; meets that rival on 7lb better terms now, but lacks the advantage of race-fitness.

Improving 5yo who dashed clear for an 11l success in the Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran Park (2m, heavy; fourth Graded win) last month, taking his record to 6-7 and entering the Champion Hurdle picture in a big way; won on yielding in the autumn; has a very attractive profile and almost certainly hasn't reached his ceiling yet; highly interesting on first Grade 1 start.

Solid juvenile last season but bypassed Cheltenham and was beaten by Jeff Kidder in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse; slammed the Triumph Hurdle winner Quilixios on his return in the Grade 3 Fishery Lane and out-battled that rival to win by a half a length at in a Grade 2 at Limerick over Christmas; potential dark horse for the Champion Hurdle but needs to win this to confirm his place at Cheltenham.

Last season's Triumph Hurdle winner; ended his campaign with a disappointing display at Punchestown; comprehensively beaten by Teahupoo in the Grade 3 Fishery Lane Hurdle on his return at Naas but the margin was just a half a length in a Grade 2 at Limerick over Christmas when he got to the front too soon; handles soft ground well but will need to be at his best to give weight to superior rivals.

Top-class juvenile hurdler last season, wins included the Boodles at Cheltenham and Punchestown Grade 1; modest on the level, unable to justify favouritism off lowly marks this term on good ground, latest over C&D last month when struggling to get home; has to remain of interest off this sort of mark and predicted rain could suit; yard in fine form.

Form & Verdict
Jumping left a bit to desired on his only run in France early last year; still looked as if he had lessons to learn when making a winning Irish debut at Gowran in March; clearly has potential to mature into a smart type, but this is very demanding at this stage of his career; hooded.

Still involved when coming down in a Grade 3 at Naas on his penultimate outing; didn't manage to build on that in a C&D handicap when last seen; a couple of these have achieved much more, albeit over fences, and he's probably vulnerable to those rivals.

Useful on the flat (though has been a reluctant loader at times), winning return in Roscommon handicap in May and Curragh second his best run; possibly didn't get home on softer ground at Tramore last time; worth a look here on hurdles debut.
