High class Flat stayer with wins in the Cesarewitch and Queen Alexandra Stakes; did not really fully fulfill his ability over hurdles although won a 2m7f conditions hurdle here in October and fared well on his chase debut when a close third here last month with a couple of these well behind him; a repeat of that is likely to be more than sufficient.

Formerly with Willie Mullins when a useful long-distance handicapper on the Flat in 2018 and had looked like a nice prospect over hurdles prior to that but missed nearly three years of action; pulled up on return to hurdles at Down Royal in October and while it was a better run at Punchestown last time, he still needs plenty more to defy this mark.
