Successful twice (2m2f/2m) on soft ground in the autumn; good third in a couple of handicaps at Leopardstown (2m4f/3m) since and the latest effort shows he's effective in a huge field; ties in with Waterford Whispers on the penultimate piece of form; consistent and steadily progressive, so looks set for another big run.

Sire can get stars; French-bred Eur48,000 3yo half-brother to hurdle winner Haiku Enki out of hurdle runner-up who was half-sister to smart jumpers; bolted up in a point for top nursery (Colin Bowe) sole start in February and runner-up's bumper RPR sole start since (107) suggests this one is exciting.
