Won at first attempt over fences in a 2m2f event at the 2022 Galway festival; backed that up with Roscommon win; let down by his jumping in the 2022 Drinmore and did not appear again until a handsome Flat maiden win at Leopardstown last June; did not get home on the uphill run in the Galway Plate; 7-1 chance then, so could be fancied here.

Quite a bit of experience over fences at this stage; looked to have every chance when falling three out in the Grade 1 Drinmore at Fairyhouse in November and not seen after that until easily landing a Ballinrobe Flat maiden last week; that should help put him spot on for this.
