Too keen on Downpatrick debut last year but much improved in tongue-tie after year off on yard debut at Ballinrobe last month, staying on well into second behind an odds-on shot (yielding) under considerate handling; top amateur again on board and major contender.

Half-brother to 4 winners including bumper winner and useful hurdler Glan; dam German 6f-1m (Listed) winner, half-sister to high-class jumper Foreman; surpassed market expectations on Navan debut in November when a clear fourth on soft-to-heavy; interesting to see how he copes with this quicker ground, major contender if doing so.

Creditable efforts in both bumpers on much softer ground over the winter, fourth to a smart sort at Fairyhouse and when chasing home a Willie Mullins-trained trio at Thurles (clear of remainder); entitled to be thereabouts if reproducing that level of form on this quicker ground after four months break.
