Unable to threaten in a bumper and three point starts in Ireland; however, he's shown signs of ability and makes his hurdle debut with his new trainer in phenomenal form; could have a part to play.

Has won five handicaps in the north since last January (one hurdle) but off a career-high mark he was brought back down to earth at Cheltenham on New Year's Day (2m4f, heavy); looks very vulnerable here under his big weight, especially trying 3m for the first time under rules; probably best on softer ground as well.
