Smart form over hurdles last season including fourth of eight in a 2m6f Grade 1 event at Leopardstown in February; poor run at Cheltenham and fell at Aintree subsequently; did not go down with a fight against the smart Quilixios on chasing debut at Limerick; never looked like making an impact in the race won by Gaelic Warrior here last month.

3m Listed novice hurdle winner last season (heavy) and best run in that sphere was his staying-on fourth in Grade 1 novice at Leopardstown (2m6f, yielding) last February; hasn't hit same form heights over fences, most recently 19l fourth of 25 in handicap chase at Leopardstown (2m5f), but he's on a good mark on his hurdle form and the step up in trip could be ideal.
