Useful in bumpers; holds Misty's Gift on Thurles running latest; that looks the best form on offer here and trained by the champion so hard to oppose but can make mistakes and will be a short price.

Jumping let him down consistently over flights until landing a 3m maiden hurdle at Cork over Easter; close third in a competitive Punchestown festival handicap hurdle when last seen; could well be the type of horse to pay much more respect to his fences; respected on his chase debut.
