Promise pointing and in bumpers, second at Galway in October; led, faded when a bit disappointing on latest; needs more to take this on hurdles bow but could find it.

Showed ability in points and bumpers without winning but displayed much-improved form when winning a maiden hurdle over C&D at Christmas time; should have improved from that hurdling debut and be a major player.

Finished runner-up in a point and improved from his rules debut when runner-up in a Galway bumper in October; that form has been boosted with the third and fifth winning since and he's the only one with rules experience.

Form & Verdict

Local runner's 7l fourth at Navan in March gives him big chance here; went chasing last month, much better jumping latest when second at Punchestown; hard to be confident but should go well.

Runner-up over hurdles on three occasions, including at this venue four weeks ago; comes into the reckoning here on the strength of his only previous chase run when second to the useful Aslukwoodhavit at Punchestown in November; third-placed Willywampus franked the form with a handicap win.
