Unraced on heavy going, seems to handle any other; ran well behind high-ranking stablemate Lossiemouth twice last term; justified favouritism in Naas Grade 3 most recently, adding to his Galway Hurdle success two starts earlier; currently well short of stablemate State Man's standard but may still rate higher and has each-way possibilities.

Flat form (0-8 and unplaced on latest) raises a doubt; however, that is outweighed by a good run over hurdles at Gowran, taking second behind Cougar who franked the form with an emphatic success at Down Royal on Saturday.
