Bought for £150,000 after two seconds in Irish points; looks well treated on the form of his front-running novice win here in November (2m, good to soft) and unlikely that he's done himself justice since then, including in a Grade 2; one to consider on handicap debut.

No great shakes on the Flat; has raised his profile over hurdles (1-6) and been holding his own behind useful opposition, getting to within 3l of An Bradan Feasa (off level weights) over 2m1f here on soft ground in December and about 5l behind Liari at Musselburgh (reversing placings with his Cheltenham conqueror); he's by no means tilting at windmills, but likely to find a few too good when it matters.
