Steadily progressive 6yo was recording third chase win in last four outings (previous two here) when taking 2m4f Grade 1 WillowWarm Gold Cup at Fairyhouse last month, seeing it out well in testing conditions; up further in trip here and faces stiffest task so far.

Trainer should never be underestimated but little to recommend on what he has shown so far; only five, so has time on his side.
