Three chase wins at up to 2m2f in the second half of 2022 (good to yielding and good ground); has won on soft over hurdles but jumping technique deserted him on that surface when finishing remote back over fences at Cheltenham in March; needs to show the form all wrong just four weeks later.

Tailed off over hurdles last time but he's better over fences, as seen when runner-up at Tipperary last month; no chase wins since 2021 but workable mark on last season's peak form and respected; best form on yielding or quicker.

Gained a second chase win at Listowel in September and even better form in defeat when third behind Global Equity at Galway in October; however, doesn't always excel in the jumping department and she made it no further than the opening fence at Cork last time; might be more to come from her.
