Smart sort over hurdles, winning three of his five outings as a novice last season, including over an extended 2m1f at this venue; has never gone further than that, but this trip should not be a big problem; both runs this term have been over fences, placed in good company.

Got the better of stablemate Magic Tricks when making winning point-to-point debut; won two of three hurdles starts last season, looking a potentially high-class sort when scoring at Navan in March; 141-rated hurdler absent since but big player if ready enough on return from 273 days off.
