Ran 11 times in France, nine on the Flat, two over hurdles; best Flat run when second in a 1m handicap on heavy ground at two; 10l clear of the third when runner-up at Auteuil last March on second run over hurdles; Grade 1 Cheltenham entries look optimistic but hardly insignificant.

Runner-up in maiden hurdles on three occasions; last two runs have been in competitive handicaps at Leopardstown and Naas; well worth considering on his C&D second in November (a nose in front of Ask The Bookie); runner-up Champagne Admiral franked the form at Leopardstown.
