Lightly raced 8yo who won a Listed chase at Thurles (2m6f, yielding) in November before Grade 3 second at Tramore (2m7f, heavy); made mistakes when pulled up in Leopardstown handicap in February and 3m2f stretched him last time, but he has a lofty mark to defy even if bouncing back.

Jumped well over hurdles last term, winning a Grade 1 at Leopardstown at the Dublin Racing Festival before finishing runner-up to The Nice Guy in two subsequent Grade 1s; that is smart form and he's the type to make a better chaser; could be hard to beat if he's near that level on chase debut and he handles conditions.

Grade 1 winner over hurdles two seasons ago; interrupted campaign since but off the mark chasing on second start back when readily taking 3m Navan beginners in January (second having won since); below expectations in Grade 2 Ten Up Novice over same C&D since, weakening before the last; likely still more to offer chasing now entering handicap company.

11lb higher than when winning this by a neck last year (soft) but Festival form is a major plus and she reverted to fences with a fine third of 18 in the Thyestes at Gowran Park (3m1f, heavy) in January; showed promise on yielding ground last season; there's every chance she'll be in the shake-up.
