SP 4-1fav for the Martin Pipe at last year's Cheltenham Festival where he proved too keen and finished mid-field before highly encouraging Punchestown festival handicap effort, having got loose beforehand; sent chasing and learned from fifth to Ferny Hollow to subsequently finish second to stablemate Haut En Couleurs at Leopardstown over Christmas; the one to beat.

Suited by the return to front-running tactics the last twice, posting two useful wins by an aggregate of 50l; soon clear in Grade 3 novice chase at Navan (2m, yielding) latest and came home on the bridle, unchallenged; improving 6yo from the Willie Mullins yard and has to be feared.

Sent off a 4-1 favourite for the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham last season; beaten in beginners' chases won by stablemates Ferny Hollow and Haut En Couleurs before facing nothing of that calibre when producing an exuberant round of jumping when obliging as a 1-2 favourite at Thurles last month; hard to beat.

Looked a nice prospect when winning a maiden hurdle on yard debut in 2018; found a Grade 1 too tough next time but bounced back with a good run here on his final start of the 2018-19 campaign in a novice handicap hurdle; however, now has a 933-day absence to defy on chase debut and a watching brief advised this time.
