C&D winner last month before finishing runner-up here (2m2f) a fortnight later and recorded career best when landing a handicap hurdle at Bellewstown 16 days ago; more needed from 8lb higher and may not want the ground to get too soft.

Without a win for 18 months; trio of good runs in Downpatrick handicap hurdles last summer; poor effort back over hurdles at Clonmel two weeks ago over 2m4f; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles at Punchestown at the start of the year; good run here in May before a creditable effort over 2m4f in July but not as good over 2m6f here last month; doesn't look particularly well treated at present but hard to put a line through.

Soft ground winner at Punchestown in January and bounced back to form when second on testing ground at Galway in October; never landed a blow however at Navan following month; has form on better ground so don't discount a return to form.

Three-time course winner at this sort of trip and it was a creditable fifth of six here last month; should relish a return to handicap company and has to be high on any shortlist.
