Won back-to-back a few seasons ago but long losing run since a course success in May 2021; may have needed her return at the Curragh when a promising enough seventh but probably needs further than this these days.

Seven of his eight wins have come at this venue, including three over C&D; however, out of form since latest claimer success and no signs of a revival when only beating one home over C&D a fortnight ago; back on a good mark at least and first-time blinkers could help.
