Fairly useful form without winning in five Flat runs for Aidan O'Brien; couldn't cope with two live Triumph contenders at Punchestown on his first run over hurdles but he has a 9lb pull with The Tide Turns on their clash there in January and he then got the job done without any great fuss at Fairyhouse (odds-on; soft); the potential is there to threaten them all off this mark and conditions will be fine.

Showed a bit of ability on the Flat and left his hurdle debut behind (early unseat) when fourth of 18 in a maiden hurdle at Naas last month, catching the eye of the stewards in the process having made up plenty of late ground; should build on that.

Some minor promise over middle distances on the Flat but unseated at the opening flight when 100-1 for a maiden hurdle 13 days ago; risky.

Form & Verdict
Rated 42 on the Flat after four runs last year (two on AW/two on turf); must show much more now hurdling but entitled to need initial experience.

Modest maiden and handicap form; plenty of improvement needed from 1m run here last month.

Useful Flat winner at 1m1f; the saddle slipped when pulled up on his first start in a hood and, with the tongue-tie added, he jumped well out in front en route to a comfortable maiden success at Naas (good to yielding); probably doesn't have to lead and it's easy to see him producing his best form yet over hurdles off what's probably a good mark; shortlisted.

Won Flat maiden at Punchestown in September; went close in a couple of maiden hurdles in December and had excuses when the saddle slipped and he was pulled up earlier this month; the one to beat on form; tongue-tie on.
