Form & Verdict

Not beaten far in a pair of bumpers and confirmed debut promise over hurdles to land 2m maiden here 15 days ago under a positive ride, forging clear before the last; shapes as though this longer trip will suit and big player, despite weight concession; holds Cheltenham entries in both Supreme and Ballymore.

Bombed out when favourite for last season's Coral Cup here but quickly back on track switched to fences this term, taking advantage of Hunter's Yarn's last-fence fall (5l down at time) to win a 2m Fairyhouse beginners' chase in December then good second to Quilixios in a Naas novice (2m, soft); a potential improver on this handicap chase debut and high on the shortlist.

Closely related to last season's Challow Hurdle winner Stage Star; winning debut in Cork mares' maiden over this trip in November in testing conditions but faded tamely in C&D Listed mares novice last month (lost a shoe); much better than that run suggests and remains unexposed so don't rule out.

Sent chasing this season and his second chase win came in smooth fashion in a top handicap at Leopardstown (3m, soft) at Christmas; hooded for both starts since (hampered when unseating first time) and good third of 21 at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy) latest but that display also sparks concern over whether he will settle well enough; stacks of potential if he does.

No special shakes as a hurdler but has come right into his own on last two chase completions, winning a beginners' race at Cork (2m5f) and giving a powerful display to beat 11 other finishers in a major handicap at Leopardstown (3m, both on soft) after Christmas; fitting a hood (retained today) was a surprise move next time, when hampered and unseating rider at the first, but he has further to go as a staying chaser and soft ground is ideal.
