Found the step up to 3m to his liking when a gritty winner of a handicap chase at Listowel; needs to rebound from a disappointing run in a Down Royal contest in which Archies Charm finished fourth.

Found the step up to this trip very much to his liking when a game winner of a handicap chase at Listowel; up 7lb for that but has a good 5lb claimer on his back here and should go close.

Now 0-12 over fences but 3m2f appeared to stretch him last time at Down Royal (May) and he had been knocking on the door from 2m5f to 3m; appears to have little in hand off this mark but hard to rule out.

Swapped usual cheekpieces for first-time blinkers and got off the mark over fences on 17th attempt, over 2m5f at Leopardstown in December; faded from two out in 3m contest at Doncaster in January; remote sixth over 2m4f at Naas in February.

Form & Verdict

Is 2lb out of the weights so therefore 10lb higher than for his win at Killarney (2m7f, soft) but that was pretty comfortable and he's been rated higher in the past; up in grade this time but by no means ruled out.

Infrequent winner but had been in good form until struggling the last twice, albeit it was a hot handicap at Market Rasen two starts ago; might just be a bit better over shorter distances than this.

Modest strike rate is a concern (1-12 hurdles, 1-18 chasing); best form this year when second on goodish ground at Killarney in May and Kilbeggan in June; jumping let him down badly at Chepstow in October; ground probably not ideal, though managed 9l second on testing going on latest.

Quite consistent over hurdles but has yet to entirely convince as a chaser (0-7; no places) and probably best to turn elsewhere.

Sole win came in a 2m5f Tramore handicap almost two years ago; several decent hurdle runs this year but was below form over fences last time; blinkers replace cheekpieces; a squeak.

Capable off this mark over hurdles; hasn't looked so good over fences in three attempts to date and his lack of experience may count against him.
