December's hurdle win saw him 5-4 favourite when returned to chasing (first time since 2022) off a lower mark for Grand National Trial at Punchestown (3m3f, heavy) in February and he came 16l second of 15; needs better than that but took a backward step when 26l sixth under Kieran Callaghan in the Irish National itself (3m5f, heavy) 19 days ago; 5lb out of the handicap.

Winning pointer but a longstanding maiden under rules (0-24 hurdles, 0-9 chasing); overall profile strikes a note of caution but a breakthrough is not out of the question; the outcome could hinge on his ability to reverse Tramore form with Brehon Star who beat him quite handily there; 6lb better off and blinkered for the first time.
