Fine efforts in defeat all four chase starts even though broke blood vessels two starts ago at Kilbeggan; better at Killarney last time even though he jumped to the right at times; will be unhelpful if he does that again today but is capable of going close.

Second to Riaan at Cork (2m4f, soft) in November, no threat to the winner but running on despite a blunder two out and being untidy at the last; no such errors at Punchestown (extended 2m3f, soft to heavy) in December latest, always close up, going on two out and threatening to turn 19-runner race into a procession before Captain Conby closed late on; style of that win has to put him on the shortlist.
