Has run seven times over hurdles, winning only once (a maiden at Gowran in September) but he easily finished 15l ahead that day and took third of six in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) two months ago on latest outing; his jumping is still not that great but this return to the forecast better ground may suit and he's an each-way player on form.
