Runner-up this summer over 1m7f at Leopardstown and 2m at the Curragh, before winning a maiden hurdle in August and well on top in a 2m handicap at Clonmel 16 days ago; gained first run on strong-finishing Sheishybrid in the latter; up the weights but he's an in-form candidate who needs respect.

Came good over hurdles in Kilbeggan maiden last month (2m, good; first-time tongue-tie) and held every chance before last-fence mishap there on recent chasing debut; switches back to hurdling for handicap debut and probably still has potential; untested on ground slower than good to yielding.
