Yet to add to his Irish hurdle win in 2020 and has a tendency to race lazily; has dropped a long way in the weights but he's failed to complete over fences in his last three runs and has a lot to prove.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.
