Cost GBP125,000 after a 5l debut point win for Mark Scallan at Carrigarostig just over a year ago; of obvious interest on debut for champion trainer whose bumper squad seems just as powerful as ever this season; fitting of a hood perhaps a slight concern.

Fourth in a maiden point last year for noted producer Colin McKeever; showed promise with a maiden hurdle second at Punchestown in November, relegating last year's Champion Bumper fourth Seabank Bistro to third; fair third behind a stablemate of Western Diego in a traditionally informative Leopardstown bumper at Christmas.

Same connections had one beaten a head in this race last year at 16-1; this 6yo has run in only two bumpers and four hurdle races, on last two outings winning on heavy ground in a maiden at Limerick (2m5f) and novice at Punchestown (2m4f); had to work to get there in the latter but he drew 12l clear and looks a scopey sort with major potential; cheekpieces join the tongue-tie; needs to prove he's quick enough for this but he's one to note.
