Not the easiest of rides but got the job done in small-field novice at Down Royal in March (2m4f, soft); let down by jumping in much more competitive handicap at Punchestown festival afterwards and back here from a short break in lower grade.

Form & Verdict

Best recent form when winning 2m2f handicap chase for Gordon Elliott at Galway last summer (soft) but was in the process of running well for these connections when unseating at the last at Thurles; no show upped in grade in valuable Aintree handicap last time; down in grade here so don't rule out.

Off the mark over fences at fifth attempt when taking decent 2m3f Kilbeggan beginners' event last month, staying on well to assert late on (first two clear); drop back to 2m may not be ideal on such quick ground.

Exaggerated hold-up tactics the norm with this horse and he has been mostly frustrating, most recently flattering briefly run-in but no match for a decisive winner at Naas in January; back from a break and while can never be ruled out, hard to be confident in all the same.
