Heavy ground when winning a Limerick Grade 2 (2m7f) at Christmas by clear daylight but he was treated with contempt by Ginto the run before (on yielding) and ran a shocker behind Minella Cocooner at Leopardstown last time; even if shrugging aside that disappointment, he'll do well to threaten.

Some useful bumper form last year and returned with a maiden hurdle success before a good run behind a nice prospect (Ginto) in a Grade 2 at Navan (2m4f, yielding); didn't need to improve when bolting up in a Grade 2 at Limerick since (2m7f, heavy) with Freedom To Dream back in second but in need of progress to win this up in grade; tongue-tie fitted.
