Had a fruitful summer with two wins on the Flat (2m/2m1f) and two over hurdles (3m/2m4f); all those were on good or good to yielding, whereas he was well beaten in his three Irish runs on soft or heavy, so that's the worry.

Not far behind Walking On Glass when enduring a trouble run at Galway; useful chaser who took advantage of his low Flat mark in a 1m7f handicap at Leopardstown (good) where he was unsurprisingly strong at the finish; into a better race here but has only gone up 2lb.

Over three years without a Flat win but had some of these behind when third at Galway (beaten 15l) and was only 5l off the winner at the Curragh (1m6f); has to be held up and can hang, so not the easiest to win with.

Shot up 16lb for winning very easily at Down Royal (1m5f, good) but coped well with that rise when third on heavy ground at Galway (1m4f); not had many chances over this sort of trip on the Flat and it should suit.
