Debut APQS winner over 1m4f on soft; won Leopardstown maiden in December on Irish/hurdling debut; a shade disappointing in Leopardstown Grade 1 contest before a comfortable odds-on win in Grade 3 event at this venue; looked like he might need further when fourth to stablemate Vauban in Irish-dominated Triumph Hurdle, but should cope with these rivals.
