One 2m win from 21 races on the Flat, showing fair form; has shown ability in all four starts (maidens) over hurdles, the latest when runner-up to an impressive odds-on winner at Punchestown in October; could have more to give in this sphere and it is needed.

Dual-purpose type, 1-24 jumps, 3-20 on Flat placed only once in 12 Flat starts since Clonmel win in September 2021; plenty to prove at this stage, but second placing over fences last time suggests he should not be ruled out.
