7-53 overall and he's proved himself thoroughly at about 3m on testing ground; creditable second at Gowran Park (3m, heavy) in September, before his form dipped in a conditions event on latest start; needs to find extra to win this.

Very useful stayer but last win was nearly two years ago; stayed on quite well over 2m4f at Listowel on return from five-month break and trip should suit but probably still high enough in the ratings; tongue-tie added.
