Stamina appeared his forte when going away at the finish in a 2m4f Grade 3 at Navan in November (soft to heavy) and he failed to give his true running when last to complete behind Readin Tommy Wrong in the Grade 1 Lawlor's Of Naas in January (soft); a test of this nature could be right up his street and he's by no means ruled out for same yard that won the Albert Bartlett with a surprise package.

Point winner on second of two starts in 2022; beaten favourite on his racecourse debut in a Kilbeggan bumper last May; has taken well to hurdling; easy winner of a 2m maiden at Clonmel despite showing a tendency to jump left; well suited by the step up to 2m4f when landing Grade 3 event at Navan; Firefox is the trainer's number one.

Went close in a maiden at Killarney last May and runner-up at Clonmel on heavy in October, no match for the useful Croke Park; no signs of progress on his last three starts; overall form is solid enough to imply he could feature in this grade on chasing debut.

Second for Donnchadh Doyle in a point-to-point won by subsequent Grade 1-winning novice hurdler Inthepocket almost two years ago; first run since although the absence is unlikely to be a drawback; probably the one to beat.
