Two-time French Flat winner (1m4f, AW/heavy) who returned from a long absence 16 days ago and won easily on his hurdle and stable debut at Naas (1m7f, soft); others have far more substance to their form and he's seemingly behind Dysart Dynamo and Kilcruit in the Willie Mullins pecking order, but this unexposed 5yo could be anything; wears a first-time tongue-tie.
