Modest form so far and couldn't get involved when never better than division on handicap debut at Clonmel last week; however, could easily improve for this new trip and this jockey is good value for his 7lb claim.

Finished tailed off on first six starts but well backed 7-2 shot when bolting up over C&D earlier this month; up 16lb but he won by 11l with plenty in hand (eased down in closing stages) and may be capable of defying that rise.

Irish hurdler who justified favouritism at Down Royal (2m1f, soft; drew clear run-in) last week, building on his promising reappearance effort (2m4f); has low mileage and looks likely to progress further; leading player even with 7lb penalty.
