Unbeaten gelding, winner of three points; has quickly established himself as a potential star of this division; beat the useful Its On The Line by 12l at Fairyhouse in November; trounced Billaway at Thurles, a fine display even though the Cheltenham title-holder almost certainly needed the run; can maintain flawless record.

Form last season featured victories over Billaway and Its On The Line; outstayed by Its On The Line at Down Royal at Christmas before unchallenged win at Thurles; ran much too freely and did not jump fluently at times at Cheltenham; suffered a surprise reverse when failing to cope with Boss Robin at Fairyhouse.

J: Mr B O’Neill

T: D M Christie

Last season he had convincing verdicts over Billaway and Its On The Line, and yet his shrewd Northern Irish trainer elected to bypass this despite being long prominent in the ante-post market; only a 7yo and very much an emerging force, but he did get outstayed by Its On The Line at Down Royal over Christmas (3m, soft; first-time tongue-tie, retained since) and that's a worry with a view to this even stiffer stamina test (more patient tactics than usual may need adopting); has since won easily at Thurles but was entitled to; appeals as the likeliest winner if seeing out the trip.

Experienced chaser and usually a very good jumper, as he displayed when third in the Topham Trophy over C&D two years ago; an easy winner of a Gowran hunter chase a month ago (3m1f, heavy) but Its On The Line does have his number on their previous clashes, so perhaps placed at best.
