Five-time winner at 1m, including three at this track; ran respectably in Listed and Group company last August/September; never in the hunt in a Listed race over the extended 1m2f on final run before a break; fair theoretical chance at these weights.

Won the 4yo handicap at 2022 Festival (good to soft) on his sole appearance at Cheltenham; his two hurdle races in 2023 and one last month were all poor, having been gelded before the latter, but there was a Flat win at last year's Galway Festival, so he might not be done with just yet; this is his first foray beyond 2m1f.
