Point-to-point and bumper winner impressed on hurdling debut this time last year at Navan before disappointing a bit in Grade 1 company; took advantage of drop in class at Punchestown festival and now starts out over fences and certainly bred for the job.

Much too good for Seabank Bistro in a 2m5f maiden at Limerick and followed up over 3m at Fairyhouse (handicap on soft to heavy), after which he moved to Emmet Mullins; now owned by JP McManus after showing admirable versatility to drop back to about 2m and edge home in a Grade 2 at Naas (yielding); that was only 19 days ago but any negatives stop there; settles and jumps well; massive shout.
