Winning pointer but a longstanding maiden under rules (0-24 hurdles, 0-9 chasing); overall profile strikes a note of caution but a breakthrough is not out of the question; the outcome could hinge on his ability to reverse Tramore form with Brehon Star who beat him quite handily there; 6lb better off and blinkered for the first time.
