Encouraging return from a break behind Sassy Yet Classy at Punchestown in November (3m, good to yielding) but his finishing has been suspect in two other runs at this trip and he was back at 2m4f when a close fourth at Navan in December (first-time blinkers, retained); stamina could be the weak link.

Every chance he could prove better than current mark of 126 when putting it all together and positives to be taken from Punchestown comeback when sixth in Pertemps qualifier; disappointing when sent off 8-1 for valuable handicap here a fortnight ago, though, and cheekpieces tried then are replaced by blinkers; no shock if he plays a leading role.
