Form & Verdict

Off the mark over fences in 2m4f handicap here in October (good-to-yielding) and matched that level of form on last month's comeback when only outstayed late over 2m7f Clonmel, clear of the remainder; drop back in trip here might not be ideal.

Poor effort over hurdles at Roscommon on his final start last year; wore a tongue-tie on for the first time when a fair sixth in a novice handicap hurdle at Fairyhouse on his recent return; should be better for the run and is more effective as a chaser; worth considering.
