His return to form at Leopardstown (2m5f, yielding) came out of the blue and it was hard work at the finish; prone to mistakes and unproven over this far, though was declared for this 12 months ago only to be withdrawn (lame).

Has found his niche in big-field handicaps, winning a Pertemps Qualifier here at Christmas 2021 and his best over fences when a very close third in the Paddy Power Chase at Christmas; probably better over further but sets a fair standard and unlikely to be too far away.

Wore cheekpieces on last two starts when doing excellent late work to be second of 27 to Meetingofthewaters in a top handicap chase and fourth of 22 in a major handicap hurdle, both 3m at Leopardstown (soft; unproven on heavy); that suggested stamina reserves and his run in the 2023 Irish National (his only attempt beyond 3m) was creditable, albeit with four rivals moving away from him late on; not dismissed.

Sole win came in a Thurles maiden hurdle three years ago; consistent and frustrating in more or less equal measure since; only one pound out of the handicap; entitled to improve from his recent Naas run (his first after a break); overall record suggests he will find a few too good.
