Veteran is a relative rarity in this race as a previous winner over fences, albeit the last of those coming at Navan in 2019 off a mark of 115; handicap mark has collapsed but no signs of a real upturn in his fortunes, including at Tipperary three weeks ago; others preferred.

Thre-time winner over hurdles and fences and a very consistent performer last year; well below his best in two starts this year, including at Tramore two weeks ago; new headgear combination tried here and a big player if back to his best.
