Bombed out when favourite for last season's Coral Cup here but quickly back on track switched to fences this term, taking advantage of Hunter's Yarn's last-fence fall (5l down at time) to win a 2m Fairyhouse beginners' chase in December then good second to Quilixios in a Naas novice (2m, soft); a potential improver on this handicap chase debut and high on the shortlist.
