His form has been up and down this season but he was a good second in the Welsh Champion Hurdle (2m, good to soft) in October and travelled well before fading at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in December last time out; not ruled out now back down in distance.

Having dropped down the weights he returned to form when upped in trip over fences here on New Year's Day (3m1f, soft), finishing second of five; much shorter trip today but he was a useful 2m-2m4f hurdler in his prime and could again be thereabouts.

Has to produce more than when sixth at Fairyhouse on New Year's Day but that was still a fair run on his first outing since November 2020, and this lightly raced 9yo is capable of better judged on his previous exploits.
