Took his form to a new level in winning a valuable 3m handicap hurdle at Leopardstown in February (yielding), producing smart RPR of 134; that's more his trip than 2m2f but he's a promising chaser in the making.

Won a very competitive handicap hurdle over 3m at this meeting last year; jumped soundly when winning on his chase debut at Galway in October but confidence seemed to suffer after a fall at Cork the following month when jumping very poorly in the Drinmore at Fairyhouse; 3lb wrong here means he is effectively running off his hurdles mark and he can get involved with better jumping.

Won a valuable 3m handicap hurdle at Leopardstown in February, earning promotion to 135; jumped well and won easily on his chasing debut at Galway, though the runner-up suffered bad interference mid-race; in touch with the leaders when falling three out in Grade 3 Cork event won by shorter-priced stablemate Letsbeclearaboutit.

Belatedly off the mark in a 2m handicap hurdle here in July (soft), showing marked improvement in the process; could be a late developer and might be happier at this trip than some of his rivals.

Two wins for previous yard, a Downpatrick bumper and an ordinary handicap hurdle at Cork; wouldn't be the obvious answer on past exploits but bred to make a chaser and he's now with Willie Mullins.

Sent chasing this season and his second chase win came in smooth fashion in a top handicap at Leopardstown (3m, soft) at Christmas; hooded for both starts since (hampered when unseating first time) and good third of 21 at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy) latest but that display also sparks concern over whether he will settle well enough; stacks of potential if he does.

No special shakes as a hurdler but has come right into his own on last two chase completions, winning a beginners' race at Cork (2m5f) and giving a powerful display to beat 11 other finishers in a major handicap at Leopardstown (3m, both on soft) after Christmas; fitting a hood (retained today) was a surprise move next time, when hampered and unseating rider at the first, but he has further to go as a staying chaser and soft ground is ideal.
