Progressive hurdler last year; gained a first chase win at Clonmel in June despite poor round of jumping; was staying on when falling three out at Wexford last time; jumping a source of concern but should not be far away in putting in an error-free round.

Back to his best with C&D success earlier in the month; 7lb rise possibly harsh but he's entitled to come on for that first run in four months; quicker ground is fine.

Form & Verdict

Early indications in points were not very promising but he came good last season, winning twice; backed that up by landing a maiden hunter chase at Cork; quite highly tried when dropped in trip to contest a Cork rated contest last month on his rules debut; made mistakes at the last two fences but did enough to suggest he could feature off this mark.
