Runner-up in a maiden hurdle on sole start on heavy; weakened right out of it on his only two appearances over about 3m, including in the Cheltenham Grade 1 novice last March; however, he put 14l between himself and his remaining three rivals (eventually headed by Roi Mage) after leading two out in a 3m2f conditions event on soft at Down Royal four weeks ago; needs better again but is much more interesting after that latest run.

Hasn't added to Listowel beginners' win last season but some solid runs in good handicap company, including third in both the Mayo and Midland Nationals; not as good on softer ground at Listowel on latest so legitimate ground concerns here.

This 7yo returned to form in a first-time tongue-tie (retained) with his strong-finishing fourth behind Shakem Up'arry in the Plate at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) last month; he's one to consider under Rachael Blackmore.

One win from nine chase runs, in a 2m6f beginners race at Listowel in September 2022; has been vulnerable in handicaps since last April and there is little reason to think he's well enough treated to play a part today either, unless the first-time tongue-tie makes a big difference.
