200,000Euros brother to yard's Grade 1-winning novice hurdler Mighty Potter, as well as half-brother to the smart hurdler/chaser and recent Paddy Power Gold Cup second French Dynamite; disappointing favourite on debut in valuable Goffs Land Rover bumper here in April behind a stable outsider, plenty keen and ran green under pressure; given time off since and no surprise if he reappeared much improved; yard in excellent form.

From the family of Champion Hurdle winner Binocular; finished in the frame in three points last season and it will be interesting how he fares in the market relative to stablemate Caldwell Potter; withdrawn from intended debut at Fairyhouse on Tuesday due to soft ground.

Chasing did not work out on first two starts this term and well beaten back over hurdles at Christmas, albeit on heavy going; wore these cheekpieces last April (career best) and on latest start, and the tongue-tie (worn on penultimate start) is back; opposable on nearly all evidence, except his 80-1 third in a Grade 1 novice at Punchestown (3m, yielding) last April.

The form of his second at Clonmel in January was given a surprise boost when the winner Jimmy Du Seuil chased home stablemate Ballyburn at Cheltenham; again runner at Thurles early last month before readily justifying favouritism at the same venue 11 days later; this opening mark gives him a fighting chance.
