Dual Grade 2 winner over hurdles last season for his former yard and runner-up to State Man at the end of the campaign; beaten odds on favourite on his chase/yard debut last month but jumped well and seemed to get tired in the closing stages; remains with plenty of potential.

Dual Grade 2 novice hurdle winner for Pat Doyle last season, runner-up to State Man in Punchestown Grade 1; beaten odds-on favourite on chase/yard debut over 2m4f at Naas in November; faced no meaningful opposition when winning at Fairyhouse; put a blot on his record with a poor round of jumping in Grade 1 Leopardstown event won by stablemate El Fabiolo.

Form & Verdict

Useful novice over hurdles for Willie Mullins a few seasons ago; not at that level over fences so far for his new yard after extended spell on the sidelines but he was better than his finishing position suggested at Naas last week when a long way behind Appreciate It (badly hampered early and never in the race); well suited to testing conditions and may outrun his odds.

Useful sort for Willie Mullins but has been well-held when facing mostly stiff tasks for this yard; another one today and best passed over.

Two hurdle wins for Willie Mullins in 2020, obtaining a mark of 142; well beaten in six completed chase starts for his current stable, all in decent company; in touch when falling four out in a Grade 3 event here in January; should find things easier now in his first handicap.

Listed winner over hurdles before finishing in behind Highland Charge in a Grade 3 novice hurdle in March; hasn't gone his way in two runs over fences so far and fell early at Leopardstown last time; others have more compelling claims.

Bounced back to form with back-to-back wins at Perth last summer and can be forgiven his subsequent chase start at Perth in September when a beaten favourite; fair mark back in this sphere and he's the one to beat if ready on return from 227 days off.

Grade 3 winner over hurdles and encouraging chase debut when third of five over 2m here last month; ought to build on that and he's the main danger to Flame Bearer.
