Winner over hurdles in France when last seen 13 months ago; intriguing debutant for Willie Mullins, not least to see this rider linking up with him.

Form & Verdict

Seems to be enjoying life more over hurdles, chasing home stablemate Echoes In Rain in a Grade 3 at Naas and running equally well when third in a competitive 2m3f handicap at the same venue last month; runner-up in this last year and unlikely to be too far away again although will have competition for the lead.

Six-time winner over hurdles; has not reached the same level over fences, displayed by his best recent run when second in the Grade 3 Grimes Hurdle at Tipperary last summer; rated 150 that day and very well suited by the race conditions if at his best; the one to beat.

Put up a career best when runner-up in a Listed chase at Ballinrobe in May but blotted his copybook when refusing to race in a Grade 3 last time; new headgear combination now tried and while he's potentially risky, he also looks feasibly treated.
