Acts on heavy ground; ran well behind high-class Gaelic Warrior in November/December; proved a handicap snip in the Kim Muir at Cheltenham (3m2f) four weeks ago, making a mockery of his mark and readily justifying 13-8 favouritism; new rating puts him top in this field.

Only ninth on last month's handicap debut at Leopardstown (2m5f, yielding to soft); however, the way he kept on, allied with his useful pedigree, bodes well for today's step up in trip; good third in Grade 1 novice chase at Limerick (2m3f, heavy) in December behind Tuesday's Arkle one-three Gaelic Warrior and Il Etait Temps; has potential off this mark and he's been the hot ante-post favourite.
