Useful hurdler was second in a Grade 3 at Naas in 2022 before running poorly in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham; first run since was in a 2m1f novice chase at this track three weeks ago and it was a fine effort behind Facile Vega; raised in trip today despite doing plenty in front then; stable jockey stays aboard.

Hurdle winner on yielding; lightly raced 7yo who was made favourite but was pulled up in the 2m5f Coral Cup in 2022; off the track for 22 months after but has made a convincing switch to fences this winter and strode clear in good style at Gowran (2m4f, heavy) 26 days ago; this race is a big step up but he is a more likely improver than many.

A bumper and three-time hurdle winner for Noel Meade and Gigginstown, he was sold for only 16,000GBP in August and makes his debut for this yard; showed ability on the first of his two chase starts; has a bit to find with some of these.

Was unlucky not to win sole point start; beat Santonito 2.25l in a Naas maiden hurdle over 2m3f before winning a Cork Grade 3 novice over 3m; disappointed in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham when last seen but rates a fine novice chasing prospect.
