Fairyhouse bumper winner two years ago, beating useful stablemate Lecky Watson; good third in 2m Leopardstown maiden hurdle on his second start after a long absence; that race worked out well but he has disappointed since at this venue and Down Royal (reportedly made a respiratory noise), leaving him with plenty to prove.
