0-4 in Irish points; however, third in maiden at Cheltenham (2m, good) and easily won one at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) four weeks later by nearly 10l; hooded front-runner for those last two starts; promising.

Long absence before last season; close to his best form last term and although he finished that campaign on a low note, he's had wind surgery since; the one to beat (on hurdle and chase form) if straight back to form.

Justified favouritism in a six-runner bumper at Punchestown (2m4f, heavy) in March; only seventh on last month's British debut but left that performance well behind when second of nine in maiden hurdle at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) 16 days later, always front rank; should improve again.

66-1 fifth of 11 in a novice hurdle at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft) six weeks ago was comparable to his best bumper form (tailed off on final start in that sphere) but still leaves him with plenty to find; had wind surgery soon after that latest outing.
