Irish point winner who progressed nicely as a novice hurdler, culminating with 2m7f novice success; finished 10l behind Pull Again Green on his switch to fences at Chepstow when his jumping could have been sharper; improvement on the cards if he's learned from that.

Sharp improver this season over fences, winning 2m6f/2m7f handicaps at Newbury (good to soft) before posting his best RPR yet in defeat at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy); now has to bounce back from a complete blowout back at Newbury and his tendency to hang would appear a trait going nowhere, but the ability is there to take a hand; now tongue tied.

Warm favourite when early faller in Plate Handicap Chase at Cheltenham last month; prior to that he was second in a hot novice handicap chase at Cheltenham (2m5f, good to soft) and has a 1lb lower mark to work with now back over hurdles; 2-4 in novice hurdles last season (both wins on soft) and he's a major player if transferring his chase form back to this sphere.

Made all for two hurdle wins, at 2m3f and 2m5f (both on soft), and an exciting front-runner to watch over fences, albeit meeting stronger stayers in 2m7f Newbury handicaps this winter; his rhythm wasn't upset by being taken on for the lead in December and this trip can suit; interesting.
