T: W P Mullins

Experienced chaser and usually a very good jumper, as he displayed when third in the Topham Trophy over C&D two years ago; an easy winner of a Gowran hunter chase a month ago (3m1f, heavy) but Its On The Line does have his number on their previous clashes, so perhaps placed at best.

No further success in only seven outings since winning the Galway Plate in 2020; creditable fifth in last year's Irish Grand National but has otherwise struggled, including over hurdles at Tipperary last summer; well below best since in valuable staying handicaps over fences.

Point winner in Britain at the start of his career; bumper/hurdles chase winner for Willie Mullins, now a four-time point winner for David Christie; two wins in November, two more in January; in between, only fourth behind Its On The Line at Down Royal; very remote last of three behind Its On The Line at Naas last time; this is a weaker race, ground not a big concern.

A good horse in his day for Willie Mullins, though failed to shine at three successive Festivals (all Grade 1s admittedly); has won four points since November (on ground ranging from yielding to heavy) but he stopped to a walk on the run-in after mixing it for a long way with Its On The Line at Naas last month and that hard race was perhaps a factor in his no-show last week at Gowran; hard to recommend so soon after that.
