Quickly rose from 99 to 138 over hurdles on last three 2022 starts after joining this stable; second at Punchestown before making amends with wide-margin wins at Navan and Leopardstown, taking the Pertemps qualifier by 16l on the second occasion; failed to run to expectations in the Cheltenham final, but will be hard to beat on chase debut.

Has been hard to train and just a maiden hurdle win to his name from only 11 starts under rules; has some classy form in defeat over fences and ran well after a long absence last year; interesting that connections have persevered this long with him.

Lightly raced 10yo is 0-7 chasing but came up against some smart sorts in beginners' chases including second to Maxxum at Tipperary on return from long absence in May; after another short break unseated halfway in Cork National early this month; potential remains although jumping still a concern.

Two wins and four seconds to his name in points; has picked up useful chasing experience but an official rating of 104 implies he would be better suited by running in handicaps.
