Punchestown maiden winner over 2m4f last October; went close over 3m at Cheltenham later that month; January run at the same venue was too bad to be true but trainer could not explain at the time; produced a reassuring display when third in a conditions race at the Punchestown festival, giving him strong claims in this company.

Has found steady improvement with each of his runs and the horse he pushed to a neck here in October (good to soft) has since returned to win a Class 2 handicap; that October race here was over 3m but he won his Irish maiden at this trip and one of two Festival entries is over 2m5f; now has tongue tied; each-way claims.

Point-to-point winner shaped well on last month's hurdles debut, close up until outpaced between final two flights when third behind a hotpot over 2m4f at Tipperary; definitely something to build on and should stay this trip.

Placed on both starts over hurdles in 2021, including second over 3m in a maiden at Cork; winner of all four completed starts since last November; rider had to cope with a slipped saddle when he was second in a hunter chase at Tipperary last time; stamina not an issue but hard to know if change of emphasis will suit.

Showed nothing on debut when hooded but with the headgear left off he made all in 2m1f maiden at Limerick; beat several useful rivals but they gave him an easy lead and he could have been flattered; goes over a much longer distance here.

Is 2-5 over hurdles, nothing has gone right since winning a Limerick beginners' chase in December 2022; in touch when falling at the tenth in the Leopardstown Chase; pulled up in a less valuable handicap chase at the same venue in March; this looks like a confidence-boosting attempt.

Has a good record at this course; 2-5, placed three times; beat the useful Effernock Fizz over an extended 2m3f in a novice chase here last autumn and narrowly beaten over 2m7f here on next start; lost a Navan match in December and has failed to complete the course on his last three starts; very risky against that background.
