Irish point winner who is 2-2 over hurdles after fairly comfortable wins on heavy ground at Newcastle; RPRs of 108 don't exactly leap off the page but he's heading in the right direction and rain is welcomed.

Better effort on his third start when runner-up at 40-1 at Newcastle (2m1f, heavy) last month; the strength of the form is open to question but the easy winner has followed up and he could have an each-way squeak.

Raced too freely and flopped badly when upped to 2m5f for last month's chasing debut but his fourth over hurdles here (2m3f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) two starts ago was promising, and he remains lightly raced; hooded for this first attempt at 3m; no surprise if he features.

0-6 over hurdles but caught the eye when keeping on well for fourth in today's headgear combination at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) last month and has possibilities here if he takes well to fences.

Second in an Irish maiden point (3m, soft) in October; again led early on when 17l fourth of 12 in novice hurdle at Hereford (2m6f, soft; 25-1) in January on rules debut, which is not the best form in this field but still puts him into serious calculations.
