Form & Verdict
Just 1-11 over fences but has some top class form to his name, including when third to Allaho over this trip on his return in the Grade 1 John Durkan Chase at Punchestown and when fourth behind Galvin in the Grade 1 Savills Chase over 3m at Leopardstown over Christmas; this represents a big drop in grade and he should be able to take advantage.

No match for Allaho at Cheltenham but looked as good as ever when winning a Grade 3 at Cork last month; probably better at 3m these days though or would at least want the ground testing to be winning graded races at 2m4f.

Acts on heavy; second in Grade 1s at four successive Cheltenham Festivals before pulling up behind Allaho last year; being beaten just over 5l in the John Durkan (third to Allaho and Janidil) and Savills (fourth to Galvin) shows he retains his ability, but that is not quite enough against the very best.

Career best when recording Grade 2 win at Navan in March (not a strong race for the grade); best efforts have come on soft or heavy ground and he has a bit to find on form here.

Strike-rate of 4-13 over fences and decent on his day, as he reminded us when good value for narrow winning margin in a Grade 2 at Navan a month ago (2m, soft); the chances are that's more his trip and these conditions are also a concern when it can't be soft enough for him.

Has seen a good deal more action over fences, below form in that sphere on latest outing and the form of his two starts over hurdles this winter (including 2m4f win) does not look good enough; however, he took a useful 2m1f handicap chase in January last year and is thrown in on that form.
