Career best when winning a beginners' at Punchestown a fortnight ago; seems like a strong stayer so this shorter trip might not be ideal but that looked like a decent race she won last time and she warrants respect with further improvement on the cards.

Looked promising over timber last term and won despite a couple of mistakes on chase debut at Down Royal last month; that form needs improving on but he stayed on well, suggesting this longer trip will suit and he should improve again.

His main claim to fame is beating none other than Galopin Des Champs in a novice hurdle at Gowran two years ago; their respective careers have subsequently headed in very different directions and, while he fared respectably in some decent handicaps last season, his recent chase debut at Navan was fairly forgettable (at 28-1); this looks no easier.
