Has won his last five, namely four point-to-points and one hunter chase; it's hard to knock that record but they were all on good ground and others in this line-up possess stronger rules form; improvement needed.

Makes chase debut on first appearance since June 2021; however, he was running well in good-ground points back then and is on a fair mark on his best Irish hurdle form; new trainer can ready one after an absence and he's not ruled out; one to watch in the betting.

Failed to win for Dan Skelton and went the wrong way after showing early promise; new trainer has got her back on track with a couple of point wins, latterly accounting for The New Kid (3m, good to soft); highly questionable whether that form will see her competitive here.
