Form & Verdict
Had been in good form this season over fences prior to bolting up in a handicap chase at Naas and proved that was no fluke when beaten just 1l from a 12lb higher mark at Limerick over Christmas; pulled too hard and didn't jump well when a beaten short-priced favourite back over hurdles last month but hard to rule out back in this sphere, despite a career-high mark.
