Won over a bit further here on heavy ground in January having been runner-up over C&D on previous start; good effort in 3m hurdle latest and he handles yielding ground as well so plenty to like off a handy weight.

Form & Verdict

Trainer spoke highly of him after easy hurdles win at Ballinrobe this time last year and 7yo ran well in a couple of beginners' chases over this kind of trip; no impression in a valuable novice contest at Navan on handicap debut but should be competitive off this mark here under Townend.

Form & Verdict

Doesn't win that often but plenty of solid handicap chase form and was touched off after three-month absence last May so might be forward enough on first start since Christmas; drying ground will help.

Modest strike rate is a concern (1-12 hurdles, 1-18 chasing); best form this year when second on goodish ground at Killarney in May and Kilbeggan in June; jumping let him down badly at Chepstow in October; ground probably not ideal, though managed 9l second on testing going on latest.

Trained in France and Britain before joining this yard last summer; C&D winner in August and then dead-heated at Downpatrick; has gone up a good bit in the ratings and apparently burst when last seen in October but owned by a local man so will be primed.

Placed several times over fences before getting off the mark with wide-margin success in a Tramore beginners' event in August; typically a front-runner, failed to sustain his effort in a 2m4f handicap at Gowran in September; did well under the same tactics when third in a rated contest at Punchestown last time
