Yet to win over hurdles but is generally consistent, arriving here on the back of second placings at both Fairyhouse (2m4f) and over this trip last month at Naas, having had every chance; should again run his race but inching higher in the handicap each time so more likely needed.

Impressive when winning over hurdles at Punchestown in May and has been in fine form on the Flat either side of that run, including when narrowly denied here on both Wednesday and Friday; hit with a 13lb rise back in this sphere and further progress is required but he's hard to rule out in his current form.
