Both wins have come on heavy ground, notably when getting due reward for consistency at Punchestown last month, asserting before the last and having a bit to spare when eased late on by today's rider; 6lb rise makes this a fair bit tougher but has to be respected.

Form & Verdict
Still a maiden after 14 starts but has been running well enough to imply a leading chance; not beaten far in fourth at Limerick in mid-November; 30l fifth at Naas last time, but that was a 24-runner contest, so still plenty of positives.

Flashes of promise for Gavin Cromwell that suggested he could be up to landing a handicap; however, he has been a long way below his best in two runs since joining this stable.

Flashes of promise for Gavin Cromwell that suggested he could be up to landing a handicap when putting it all together; SP 6-1 when last seen at Sligo in October but ws pulled up having reportedly stopped quickly, according to rider (vet 6yo was blowing hard post race); needs to bounce back.
