Off for a year after being touched off in a 2m2f handicap chase at Thurles in 2021; decent effort on his second run back over the same C&D before Christmas, a neck behind today's rival (and subsequent winner) Union Park; bolted up at Naas early in the month, chance has to be taken very seriously despite an 8lb rise.
