Very useful hurdler/chaser in his prime but he struggled in final few starts in Ireland and it's been the same story so far for this yard; mark continues to fall but this 10yo needs a major revival back up in trip.

Smart hurdler/chaser in Ireland and he ran okay in last season's cross-country race at the Cheltenham Festival; it's been a poor 12 months otherwise and pulling up in a recent hunter chase makes him very opposable back over hurdles.
