Smart hurdler; chase/seasonal debut went really well at Kilbeggan, always in control; this looks a weaker race.

Put up a career best when runner-up in a Listed chase at Ballinrobe in May but blotted his copybook when refusing to race in a Grade 3 last time; new headgear combination now tried and while he's potentially risky, he also looks feasibly treated.

Pretty solid maiden running a lot of late but if he runs his race he should have good place chance; no match for winner at Clonmel Friday and this much tougher.

Still only six and has already run 35 times; off the mark over fences at Tramore in August, beating the only other finisher; some creditable efforts in defeat, but 1-14 record over fences suggests he is vulnerable in a race like this.
