Won a Listed bumper a couple of seasons ago; made a winning return when dropped in class to a maiden hurdle at Naas in November and wasn't beaten far despite only beating one home in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse later that month; made an error and fell when favourite at Limerick latest; can be forgiven that and one to consider.

Sole hurdles win was in France in 2019; campaigned mostly over fences here and capable off a mark of 137; has all the allowances here and if able to run close to her chase rating will take plenty of beating.

Nine career wins, three of them here including this race last year; very useful front-runner at his best although can be very tricky at the start; could be hard to peg back if he's in the mood.

Form & Verdict
Wins here and at Tramore this year show that he is well suited by tight, undulating tracks; ran no race in a valuable handicap hurdle at Galway last week but was in good form coming into that contest over hurdles and on the Flat and gets a handy weight allowance here; should be thereabouts.
