May have needed first run in over eight months when well beaten favourite in a bumper at Cork three weeks ago; ran well in pair of 2m5f maidens at Punchestown last November, the winners of which are now rated 137 and 141; that's the best hurdles form on show here and he has an obvious chance; has been hooded, now tried in cheekpieces.
