Is 6-20 over fences; gained his most significant win in a 2m6f Listed handicap chase at this venue last August, a 10l success that brought an 11lb rise in the ratings; down the field in the Kerry National; warmed up for this with a hurdles run last month; four wins from five visits to this track, worth considering despite a big burden.

Form & Verdict

Early-season form brings him into it, running well on the Banks course at Punchestown before his fifth in a field of 28 at Leopardstown over Christmas (3m, yielding); needs to get back in the groove but dangerous to dismiss after a break.

Best of his runs on heavy was his win in a maiden hurdle in 2020; fell in the 2022 Topham over these fences; won a Cheltenham cross-country race (3m5f, good to soft) in November, having come a cropper on two earlier attempts at that course, but this 8lb higher mark seems to demand another major career best.
