Showed ability on sole point start when runner-up to subsequent bumper winner Wingmen; third behind a pair of more experienced rivals (both maiden hurdle winners this season) on bumper debut at Cork last March; had the useful Lucid Dreams (now winner of six races) behind when landing a bumper at Ballinrobe last April; likely to be well primed for this.
