Form & Verdict

Won a novice here last season before landing the Fred Winter; wasn't quite at the same level in a Grade 1 at Aintree but it was a promising reappearance last month chasing home a top prospect and there should be more to come this term.

Won the 4yo handicap at 2022 Festival (good to soft) on his sole appearance at Cheltenham; his two hurdle races in 2023 and one last month were all poor, having been gelded before the latter, but there was a Flat win at last year's Galway Festival, so he might not be done with just yet; this is his first foray beyond 2m1f.

Good juvenile, won the Boodles at Cheltenham and won a Grade 3 at Naas; also won a premier handicap on the Flat at Galway; not seen since down the field in the Irish Cesarewitch; claims on his best form.

Form & Verdict

Unlucky to bump into Vauban last season, chasing home that rival on three occasions in Grade 1 company; probably didn't set a strong enough gallop when 4l second to Vauban at Punchestown on final start of last season; good chance he can give a good account on his reappearance but has to concede weight to all.

Beaten 20l when seventh in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham and a remote third at Fairyhouse on latest (16l behind runner-up Appreciate It); solid runs when chasing home Mullins-trained stars Dinoblue at Naas and El Fabiolo at Cork over 2m earlier in the season.

Versatile ground-wise; creditable second behind highly notable rivals at Naas (Grade 3) and Cork (Grade 2) since returned to chasing; filled same position in the Triumph Hurdle here two years ago; campaigned mostly at about 2m but pedigree suggests this return to 2m4f is well worth exploring and, being the youngest horse in the field, he has the potential to rate higher still; interesting contender.

Followed a good third in the Galway Hurdle with a career best Listowel handicap hurdle success in September; slower ground might not be ideal but should go well if he handles conditions.

Flat runs last autumn included the biggest win of his career (front-running at 2m on soft); big step up in trip for the Carlisle qualifier (3m1f, good to soft) in December and third of eight there was clearly his best result over hurdles for 15 months, albeit subsiding by 12l didn't persuade that he's the strongest stayer; off since and others are more persuasive.
