Grade 2 and Listed winner over hurdles; improved from his chase debut when only beaten 2l at Punchestown three weeks ago; could step forward again here, handles conditions and he'll be in the mix if he can match the best of his hurdle form.

J: Ben Harvey

T: John C McConnell

Usually front-runs or races prominently; best known for last year's NH Chase at the Cheltenham Festival (3m6f, soft; has won well on soft to heavy) where he was 4l ahead when falling two out; that left a lingering stamina question but he resumed improvement to be second in the big 3m2f handicap at Newbury in November when last seen; raised 7lb but he's a second-season chaser who may well improve again and makes serious appeal.

Form & Verdict

Left his hurdle form behind when beaten roughly 3l on chase debut behind Gerri Colombe and stablemate Bronn; showed that was no fluke when roughly 2l behind another stablemate, Ramillies, at Thurles last month; handles softer ground and has to be high on any shortlist; Townend rides Aione but not impossible that connections wanted to keep this horse/rider partnership intact.

Has only won a 3m maiden hurdle in the mud; beaten four times over fences and, while the opposition has been respectable each time, he never posed much of a threat when raised in distance to the 3m6f of the National Hunt Chase; only a 6yo and this might be a year too early for him.
