First chase win was gained at Roscommon recently at the 17th attempt; up 7lb for that, so fair to say she is vulnerable based on overall record; the overdue breakthrough was prefaced by Killarney third, runner-up has won since then.

Ground versatile 2-22 chaser seemed to lose his confidence a little with one or two sketchy jumps midway when last seen out at Leopardstown; if you draw a line through that run, his previous form makes for sound enough reading, and if back on his game here, he could be one to keep on your side.
