Late-maturing sort; began career in March; followed up a 2m Ballinrobe maiden win in May with a comfortable success over 2m4f at Roscommon; creditable second back over 2m at that venue; too keen when mid-field in Galway handicap; big drop in trip now after winning a 2m7f hurdle at Killarney; will be hard to beat if taking to chasing.

Three wins apiece over hurdles and fences from 2m-2m7f on all types of ground; fine efforts in defeat in graded chase company the last twice and should run his race again; has a bit to find against his sole rival at these weights but could take advantage if that one doesn't run to his mark.
