Won a Tipperary bumper on debut in May and didn't need to improve to maintain his unbeaten record at Roscommon a month later; form of both those wins has taken some knocks since so looks vulnerable up in grade.

Unbeaten winner of five races, including this event 12 months ago on his first run since the previous June; confirmed form with runner-up Fact To File in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper and completed the Grade 1 double when too good for the smart Tullyhill at Punchestown; much-anticipated switch to hurdling delayed after a training setback; sets a very high standard.

Wide margin winner of a point and won a 2m4f bumper here in December when staying on very strongly; didn't give the impression he would want a shorter trip on quicker ground that day but he's the yard's first-string and warrants respect on that basis alone.

Straight over fences after finishing second in last year's Champion Bumper; impressive in small-field events the last twice, sole finisher in Grade 1 match race at Leopardstown last month (2m5f, yielding to soft) with stablemate Gaelic Warrior running badly; a serious talent whose jumping still leaves a little to be desired, while he is unproven over this far but is bred to stay.

Did well to pick up two rivals from Willie Mullins' stable (including re-opposing Special Cadeau) when winning over C&D on debut; that form is untested and he doesn't have his rider's claim this time but yard are in form and he should be firmly in the mix if he comes on for his debut.

Off the mark over hurdles in Thurles maiden (2m, heavy) last month and solid fourth of nine on subsequent handicap debut at Cork (2m3f, soft to heavy); the first-time hood could help him settle now up in trip and this 3m point winner has to be respected for the all-conquering Willie Mullins.
