Made all at Taunton (2m3f, heavy; first time tongue-tie; from 2lb higher) last March; mixed fortunes this season; working slowly back to form post wind surgery, and better at Exeter (2m5f, soft; fourth, beaten 17l) last time; this shorter trip should suit.

Good-ground bumper winner in Britain; beaten only 6.5l in a Navan handicap on yielding (first-time hood dispensed with since) and perhaps found the ground too soft at Fairyhouse; absent since October but has probably been waiting for this ground; stamina could be an issue, however.
