Flat maiden became regressive in that sphere early in the season; unseated at the first behind Our Boy Wes on hurdling debut but has been runner-up in last two hurdle starts; 6lb better off with that rival now and should be involved.

Runner-up in five of his eight hurdles and can lack some concentration when it matters; not without place claims on the peak of his efforts but he's now 0-15 under both codes and firmly frustrating; it would go against the grain to trust one with his overall profile in this fierce a handicap.

Fair handicapper on the Flat (seemed not to stay when third over 1m6f); made a winning start over hurdles when beating a subsequent winner at Ballinrobe in August (2m, good to yielding); interesting contender.

Fair flat maiden and pick of four attempts hurdling when front-running third at Galway on soft, too keen under similar tactics over C&D latest (Burvea ahead); more needed on handicap debut.
