Yet to score on the Flat, best effort when runner-up in last season's November Handicap; two wins over hurdles this year and most recently finished a decent sixth in a very valuable Punchestown festival handicap hurdle; champion jockey booked and likely to have a leading chance; handles all ground.

Progressive on Flat last season, winning over 2m1f at Killarney and over 1m6f at the Curragh before creditable sixth in competitive York contest; won a juvenile maiden hurdle at Navan; lacks a recent outing, but potentially interesting; second reserve.

Versatile regarding the ground and effective at 2m but his best efforts have been over 2m4f, such as when runner-up here on Boxing Day; soft ground will bring his stamina into play but there's still a query as to whether he will have the pace to keep tabs on the principals.
