Fourth in Champion Bumper at Cheltenham is the standout formline here but didn't show that form when a beaten favourite at Punchestown in April; winner of that had been debut second to Shannon Royale at Clonmel; plenty of hurdle winners in family.

Decent staying novice this season, winning at Thurles and stepping up in graded company since; only a half-length behind Slade Steel in a Navan Grade 2 and a respectable eight lengths fifth in the Albert Bartlett; more needed here but can get into the shake-up.

Lecky Watson

J: Brian Hayes

T: W P Mullins

Fourth in last season's Champion Bumper when 3l behind Captain Teague; novicey jumping has been a feature in all three hurdle races, so he has done well to finish on the scene in Graded events the last twice over 2m4f (keeping on), with his close second to Slade Steel in the penultimate one looking all the better now after his conqueror's win here on Tuesday; won his maiden over 2m7f (soft) and promises to be well suited to a 3m slugfest should his jumping stand the test (first-time hood may help in that respect).

Runner-up on first three starts before a creditable fourth in Champion Bumper at Cheltenham; below-par at Punchestown in April; had to work harder than might have been expected to land the odds on hurdling debut in a 2m7f maiden at Thurles; jumping none too fluent when second to a stablemate of An Tobar in 2m4f Grade 2 event at Navan.

Clonmel bumper winner on heavy ground in April; turned over at 3-10 on hurdling debut at Fairyhouse and no doubt that being beaten by 107-rated rival was disappointing but having the run under his belt may be crucial in testing conditions.
