Returned from seven months off with solid handicap efforts at Thurles and Punchestown; ran well but didn't quite seem to get home over 2m4f at Fairyhouse last month; should be okay on the ground and the drop back in trip will suit; should go well.

Running okay over hurdles of late; last Flat run was a low-key effort well held in Galway festival handicap but his previous effort at Bellewstown would give him a squeak when only beaten 2l; probably needs a bit further than this these days though.
