Yet to score over hurdles but gradually getting there, a good second in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse followed by a respectable effort in the Boodles at Cheltenham where his jumping did let him down; return to a right-handed will suit and looks to have a good opportunity here.

One of the most talented of these on the Flat having recorded RPR of 90; beaten in three maidens over hurdles before posting his best form yet in edging out White Pepper for second behind a class act in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse (soft); his strong finishing effort that day suggests this test might suit him down to the ground; return of blinkers probably no bad thing either (fitted for both Flat wins).
