Former Grade 3 novice hurdle winner, landing 2m4f Navan event in 2020, when his form also included a Grade 2 second over the same course and trip; ran only once last season, let down by his jumping on his chasing debut; produced a reassuring effort when second at Limerick in May; longer trip should suit, could be hard to beat, given an error-free round.

Won Grade 3 novice hurdle at Navan (2m4f, soft) last year before 6l second over same C&D in a Grade 2 in December; similar form when fourth in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Leopardstown before failing to justify market support in the Albert Bartlett; definite player if he's as good over fences but may be best watched this time making his chase debut on return from 235 days off.

Won two staying hurdles in May, accounting for the useful The Bosses Oscar at Wexford on the second occasion; made promising chase debut at Kilbeggan, beaten only a head and 2 1/2l in front of the much more experienced Alfa Mix; leading when falling at sixth at Limerick on second attempt; can make amends with a clear round.
