Went close in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Cork from a mark of 101 last year; ran well on other occasions too; however, his form in beginners' chases has been dismal; trainer has a much more obvious candidate in Money Heist, though if the market points in his direction, he would have to enter calculations.
