Made a belated breakthrough in a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan last July; tailed off in a handicap chase at the same venue in August; different proposition when scoring over a trip just short of 3m at this venue in October; well back under a hold-up ride brought down three out at Naas nine weeks ago.

Won at Thurles last March and backed that up with a good second at Fairyhouse; hampered by a faller when pulled up in a valuable Killarney handicap on his final run before a break; less easy to excuse poor performances on his first two outings of the current campaign; blinkers may rekindle his enthusiasm.

Not firing on all cylinders since returning in the autumn from a break, and the addition of blinkers (retained) did not appear to make much difference at Punchestown three weeks ago; now has tongue-tie fitted for first time since maiden hurdle win in 2021; needs to up his game but respected Irish trainer has booked Brian Hughes.

Form & Verdict

Strong stayer who won the valuable Porterstown Chase over 3m5f at Fairyhouse last season but no comparable form in high-value handicaps since; none too fluent on seasonal return in Troytown; never in the hunt when 100-1 chance in the Paddy Power at Leopardstown last time; back on his last winning mark, but hard to be confident.
