Carried all before him as a novice hurdler last season and ran out a mighty impressive winner of what was a strong edition of the Supreme at Cheltenham (2m, soft); held in the highest possible regard by his trainer, he's already challenging Facile Vega for favouritism in the Arkle without jumping a fence in public; it will be disappointing should he not pass this first test.

Unbeaten; 2-2 in bumpers, 3-3 over hurdles, including the Royal Bond and the Supreme Novices', in which he was highly impressive in beating Facile Vega in a strong edition in which Irish horses filled the first eighth places; produced a stunning display on his chasing debut here at Christmas; looks an exceptional talent.

Won his first three starts (2m, good/good to yielding) then landed the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) in December, when he did well to get up by a head having had to wait for room in the straight before a momentum-stalling mistake at the final flight; could be a key player.

Dual hurdle winner with a best RPR of 134 so he's smart; hampered two out and otherwise might have made a successful chase debut at Punchestown (2m, heavy) two weeks ago having jumped well; however, this is a much stronger race.

Didn't hang about over hurdles and was highly tried after winning his maiden; easily his best form yet when runner-up on his chase debut at Thurles (2m2f, yielding) when no match for the odds-on Il Etait Temps who was beaten 9l by Marine Nationale in last season's Supreme; could be the one to chase home the hot favourite.
