Fair fifth of 16 in Goffs Defender Bumper at Fairyhouse in April; third behind the well-regarded Butcher Hollow (second in a maiden hurdle at Navan on Saturday) in a Galway bumper in October; made all and stuck to his task well when winning on his hurdling debut at Cork; has the advantage of race fitness over the Mullins pair.
