Hooded for four previous runs (tongue tied last three); probably didn't have to improve to win a soft-ground bumper in these colours at Hexham in April; penalised accordingly but now with Joseph O'Brien and further progression highly likely.

Second to recent Cheltenham Grade 2 winner Shanagh Bob in his final point and has bumped into further top-notchers in his maiden hurdles, finishing fourth to Slade Steel and second to last week's Leopardstown Grade 1 winner Caldwell Potter at Navan; this looks a golden opportunity to shed his maiden status.
