Form & Verdict

On a losing run; beaten favourite when third here in February and made errors at Cheltenham; would be involved if he could find his best recent chase form over regulation fences but that's not guaranteed.

Has had problems coping with this course (refused on his two attempts in 2022); however, has to enter calculations following a fine run when splitting De Nordener and Three By Two at Lingstown, especially since that came after a break of over a year; trainer won this with bank specialist Vital Island in 2022.

Transformed with new yard, winning handicaps at Punchestown (2m3f; by a street) in June and Killarney (2m7f, yielding to soft; in a tight scrap) in October, with Flat success in between; going great guns but this mark seems to ask a lot more of him, especially from 3lb out of the handicap.
