Won 3m handicap here in 2020 and this time last year won on good ground at Downpatrick for Gavin Cromwell; encouraging start for new yard when chasing home a runaway winner at Clonmel last month (for today's rider) but beaten when a faller in Punchestown banks event; back over the conventional fences here and one to consider off a fair mark from a stable in fine form.
