Ran creditably over this trip at Leopardstown in March last year on his penultimate run for his previous trainer; fell in a handicap chase on stable debut; strong contender now following a good second in a 2m6f handicap hurdle at Down Royal; needs to jump more cleanly.

Bounced back to form with back-to-back wins at Perth last summer and can be forgiven his subsequent chase start at Perth in September when a beaten favourite; fair mark back in this sphere and he's the one to beat if ready on return from 227 days off.

Sole success in 15 came over 2m4f here in October 2022; lightly raced since but comparable form in his placed efforts and the cheekpieces in which he disappointed when last seen are now left off; stamina is not assured, mind.
