Course bumper winner on this card last year; fourth behind stablemate Facile Vega in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham; struggled in Punchestown equivalent; doubts raised by status as a dual beaten favourite in maiden hurdles; on the plus side, the Limerick winner Corbetts Cross is now rated 143 after an emphatic handicap win at Fairyhouse.

Fourth in last season's Champion Bumper here; turned over when odds-on for his first two hurdle races (2m5f; just over 3l behind Corbetts Cross in the second) and it was a very winnable maiden that he picked up at Naas (2m3f, soft); however, the demands of this race can spike significant improvement and it would be no surprise if he ran his best race yet.
