Soundly beaten in first two handicap hurdles but was clear second at Southwell (3m, good to soft) in March, having been heavily backed; not in same form when returned to Southwell last month but will be dangerous if back on song in first-time cheekpieces here.

Bought for 135,000euros after easily winning an Irish point last April; 5-2 favourite when pulled up on hurdling debut but 33-1 when suffering the same fate last time; perhaps the wind surgery/tongue-tie will help.

Easily won an Irish maiden point (3m, yielding to soft) in April and was sold for 135,000euros later that month; it's still very early days under rules but he was pulled up on his hurdle debut at Worcester (2m4f, soft; 5-2 favourite) in October and he's hard to fancy on the back of that.
