J: Mr S W Condon

Off the mark at the 11th attempt last time in pretty remarkable circumstances at Kilbeggan, trading at 999-1 in-running after being hampered at the third last before staying on strongly to run out a cosy 5.5l winner (a first victory for his 59-year-old jockey/owner); hit with 10lb rise but isn't too exposed and could easily have more to come.

Really consistent a few seasons ago but missed all of 2020 and tailed off on sole start in 2021; off another 431 days and hard to recommend, despite a nice handicap mark.

Second reserve; consistent sort in 2019; came back from an absence last year but then went missing again; hard to fancy.
