Won a Listed chase at Ballinrobe and bounced back from a lesser effort over fences when winning over hurdles latest; however, doesn't look well treated and all his best form is on better ground.

Eight-time winner was rated 145 in his prime although hasn't won beyond 2m4f; very creditable comeback run on the flat at Galway after 267-day absence shows spark remains; trip an unknown.

Three-time winner over hurdles and two solid runs in beginners' chases, including behind Klassical Dream at Thurles, with today's rival Gold Bullion almost 10l away in third; poor effort at Navan in January can probably be forgiven due to heavy ground.

Grade 1-winning juvenile; possibly a shade unlucky when unseating at the last at Punchestown in June and didn't run at all badly in Grade 3 Grimes Hurdle at Tipperary following month; marked step up in trip here and major player if staying.

Never regained the heights of the spring of 2021 when winning the Boodles at Cheltenham and the Grade 1 Champion juvenile at Punchestown; no success in the senior ranks; respectable run in a Fairyhouse handicap last time, but others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Multiple winner at this trip, including Kilbeggan handicap in June; down the field afterwards in Midlands National at same venue and has missed engagements since due to soft ground; ground back in his favour here but stiff enough task conceding weight to some of these rivals.

Far better than latest placings suggest but hard to know what to expect here on chasing debut from this 0-4 pointer and 1-7 hurdler; worth a market check all the same.
