Runner-up in Irish maiden point (3m, soft) last November on his second start and changed hands for £95,000 six days later; absent since but brings potential to this rules debut and no surprise to see a good run.

Four-time Flat winner (1m4f-1m6f) who was second in that code in September on his latest start; operating at a modest level this season and unproven on slow ground, but he should be fine stamina-wise and it's possible he'll have an each-way squeak on this hurdle debut.
