Point-to-point winner and successful in a bumper and maiden hurdle at Downpatrick last year before readily beating the useful Toss Again in a 2m7f novice hurdle at Killarney; back from a break when a pleasing second of 11 on chase debut at Wexford; beaten favourite at Downpatrick; this trip shorter than ideal.
