Back to form to spring 25-1 shock over C&D 11 days ago, making up plenty of late ground under today's rider to get up late; 3lb rise so still on a fair mark and has to be respected although consistency hasn't been his strong point in the past.

In good form last summer, winning a Ballinrobe flat handicap and getting off the mark over timber in Navan handicap in September; very encouraging return in March when close third at Limerick (2m); didn't seem to stay over C&D last summer when a shade keen so will need to settle to get home here.
