Dual Grade 2 winner over hurdles and Grade 1 placed; not at his best behind stablemate Teahupoo in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse in December; didn't jump great when beaten 17l on chasing debut behind top-class Fact To File since but faces nothing of his calibre today; big player.

Smart hurdler is a dual Grade 2 winner and Grade 1 placed; decent chasing debut over 2m2f here behind recent Grade 1 winner Il Etait Temps which was followed by a similar hurdle run; should be closely involved.

Quality three-time hurdle winner has run with credit on both chase starts this term, in a Grade 3 at Cork and Grade 2 at Cheltenham; a repeat of those runs will put him firmly in the mix.

Progressed well over hurdles once he joined this yard and his form in that discipline is right up there in this company; finished a well-held second on chase debut at Cork (2m4f, soft) but that was a strong-looking Grade 3 and the winner is decidedly useful; this shorter trip won't faze him (travels strongly; settles better these days) and there's lots to like about his prospects.

Useful form two seasons ago, including a Galway novice win, second in a 3m Listed hurdle at this venue, and third in a valuable staying handicap at Navan; off for 21 months before low-key return at Naas in November; Fairyhouse run last month was a step in the right direction.
