Now a three-time winner over fences; possibly a little fortunate to get away with a 4lb rise for his front-running success at Thurles at the beginning of the month; 5lb claimer controlled the race effectively then.

Following a break he returned to form with a 3l third of six at Cork (2m, soft) recently; his last win came over 2m4f and this Irish challenger could have a part to play now back up in trip.

Has been dropping in the handicap for the last 18 months but for a reason as he has been unplaced most starts; some good runs too, though, and has a chance if on song after his absence.
