Won a soft-ground bumper at this meeting two years ago; played a minor role in that season's Champion Bumper at Cheltenham (heavy) but he bounced back from that to give Facile Vega a fright at Punchestown (Grade 1, good to yielding); has a long absence to overcome but his form credentials are there for all to see; market should be instructive.
