Had a good spell in handicaps in the first half of last season and ran to form when finishing second to a stablemate in Navan conditions event in September; entitled to come on considerably from his Punchestown festival run, with better ground to suit.

Has not taken to hurdling well but has useful Flat form and could not be ruled out with Rachael Blackmore in the McManus colours; has won twice over 1m, and placed in three of his five races at this venue; beaten only a neck in a 25-runner 1m handicap here two seasons ago.

Considering the level he reached on the Flat (peak RPR of 106) it's been an underwhelming start over hurdles and he faded rather disappointingly when beaten 21l into third at Wexford 22 days ago; but if he repeats his fourth of six in a Grade 3 last season he'd surely win this.

A 98-rated Flat horse, narrowly beaten by a stable companion in last year's Irish Cambridgeshire his best effort; ran okay in a Grade 3 novice hurdle at Naas on his second start over hurdles; not seen since beaten a long way in the Irish Lincoln in March; not easy to assess what is expected here but certainly has the ability to be a significant factor.

Useful on Flat in France early in his career, three wins and never out of the first three; mixed signals from jumps form but was respected by virtue of his 140 rating in that sphere; did not enjoy much fortune last season, but managed second in Scottish Champion Hurdle.

Last year's winner (off 130) hasn't won again since, often facing stiff tasks; seasonal-best however 10 days ago when second in Scottish Champion Hurdle (handicap) at Ayr, having to be switched when coming late; better ground no problem; Townend prefers Daddy Long Legs.

4-44 on Flat; won valuable handicaps at Leopardstown and Ascot (Shergar Cup Mile) in 2022 but not at the same level last term when placed just once in eight starts; two Flat runs have been uninspiring but he won a maiden hurdle at Ballinrobe last month; positive jockey booking.
