Successful on only start in France in 1m4f AQPS race in July 2020; raced in good company in two juvenile hurdle runs last season; excellent effort as stable's second-string on seasonal debut at Navan last month, splitting a Gordon Elliott-trained pair in a stronger contest than this; should go one better.

Expensive purchase out of Colin Bowe's top-class nursery after winning his sole point-to-point in 2019; disappointing since last season's debut second in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse; hard to be confident since he has clearly failed to progress as expected, but may now find his level in handicaps.
