Flat winner in Britain; opened hurdles account at the sixth attempt, landing a C&D maiden in November; down the field in a valuable handicap at Fairyhouse last month; more relevant form in this context is his fourth placing in the Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel; also managed a fine third on the Flat in the Naas November Handicap; makes plenty of appeal in this grade.

Has run in just one French bumper and four Irish hurdle races; impressive in a maiden at Navan (heavy) and, although put firmly in his place, he's run with credit since behind Tuesday's Mullins-trained Supreme runners Mystical Power and Tullyhill; all those were at about 2m and stepping up in trip may well suit; makes his handicap debut too and looks the first string on jockey bookings for his powerful stable.
