Back to form to score over 3m at Fairyhouse in October and better again in similar contest following month, only outstayed late on by a well-backed winner in testing conditions; veteran clearly in fine fettle and has run well here before.

Third over C&D over the summer and Killarney second to an improver in October his standout run; too keen and paid the price at Fairyhouse last time on heavy so will need to settle better here.

A 16-race maiden with good placed form to his credit, although did not look that keen to go through with it at Tramore last month; a run to that level will still leave him thereabouts here though.

Form & Verdict

Returned from 282-day absence improving markedly on some moderate maiden form when well-backed on C&D handicap debut in late November, comfortably beating Kiln Time despite looking green; 10lb hike on the face of it looks harsh but remains very much unexposed with further improvement almost certain.

Returned from 282-day absence to justify market support handicap debut at Tramore in November (2m6f); ran a bit in snatches off 10lb higher mark when testing ground may not have suited in similar contest on New Year's Day, keeping on for pressure; back on better ground here and may still have more to offer upped in trip.

Form of Tramore second behind Buachaillbocht in November makes good reading but he has been unable to build on that; form ties in with a couple of these; fifth behind Duffy's Getaway at this venue, before Fairyhouse second that matches him closely with Cher Why Not; beaten 12l when second on stable debut over 2m5f at Limerick.
