In second place when final-fence faller in Irish point; justified favouritism in C&D contest (good to soft) for new yard, beating a subsequent hurdles winner; respected under 4lb penalty.

Prominent in market for an Irish maiden point (yielding) in April and was not far away in second when he fell at the last; closely related to a useful bumper winner and he needs a close look on his switch to this sphere.

Stablemate of Kinbara Hills; showed promise in valuable event at Fairyhouse (rules debut) last April then posted a lesser effort in November; fitting of tongue-tie is a possible source of improvement.

Son of Diamond Boy cost 30,000Euroas as a foal and 50,000Euros as a 3yo; half-brother to bumper/useful 2m4f-2m6f jumps winner The Caddy Rose; dam unraced half-sister to bumper and 2m3f-2m6f hurdle/high-class chase winner Harbour Pilot; pulled up in both point-to-points so seems an unlikely one here on bumper debut.
