Four-time points winner, including both starts during 2021 autumn campaign; beat subsequent handicap chase winner Three Loud Knocks when landing Clonmel maiden hunters' chase in January; struggled when raised in class at Naas, a display that looked too bad to be true; trainer has won this race in four of the last five seasons.

First past the post in six of his last seven starts and posted best effort yet when winning Clonmel maiden hunter chase five weeks ago; in deeper waters now against a top performer in this sphere in Billaway but could still have more progression to come.
