Bought for 120,000euros after winning a point; failed to justify favouritism in a Down Royal bumper and was no match for a Mullins hotpot on hurdling debut at Thurles (2m); looks all about stamina so no surprise to see him raised in trip here.

A 200,000GBP purchase after Tallow point win in February; looked smart when travelling strongly on the way to an emphatic Galway bumper win in October; room for improvement in his hurdling technique judged on 9l second to the impressive Jigoro in a 26-runner maiden over 2m at Navan; trip should prove well within his range.
