Much-improved on his last two starts, getting off the mark over 2m here in July and a better run in a C&D novice since behind some decent sorts; likely more to come and respected.

Progressing well since upped in trip, winning Killarney novice and narrowly beaten in C&D novice before career-best in similar (Listed) contest last month, outjumping What Path two out and seeing it out well from the last; 4lb worse off with that rival here but possibly as the greater scope for improvement.

Was third in a 2m4f novice hurdle here in May and ran respectably in the competitive Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel after a break; should have improved from that and a chance.

Point', bumper and maiden hurdle winner but lacks consistency; below his best again at Listowel last week when raced keenly and needs the hood to help.

Promising in bumpers in spring 2021 and returned from a long absence with two hurdle wins this summer (2m/2m6f); shade disappointing when only fourth of five at Killarney this month but remains unexposed; no surprise if he features on handicap debut.
