Decent good ground performer, winning a Down Royal handicap hurdle in June and when touched off by Wouldn't You Agree in a competitive contest at Killarney in August; not beaten far behind Gua Du Large with a few of these in his vicinity at Fairyhouse in November; has an each-way shout if the rain stays away.

Form & Verdict
Classy hurdler won a valuable Leopardstown handicap in February; improved from his chasing debut to win easily at Kilbeggan and doubled his chase score at Wexford last time, albeit not as impressively; looks a major player.
