Hunter chase winner in 2022; modest overall record (1-27 under rules, 2-24 in points); however, has often run well over this course, notably when second in the 4m2f La Touche in 2021; remote fifth in this race 12 months ago, but much better when third in the La Touche two days later; has struggled in points this term.

Decent chase form in France without winning; excellent second behind accomplished stablemate Billaway on his hunter chase debut at Naas in February; made amends for a disappointing Thurles run when winning at Tramore just over a fortnight ago; jumping was not exactly convincing, a worry now that he tackles these varied obstacles; strong chance nonetheless.
