J: Patrick M O’Brien

Showed some ability in maiden hurdles but improved form since switched to handicaps; won over this trip at Leopardstown in similar conditions last time but was hit with an 8lb rise; still, he should have more to give and a major player.

Two near-misses in maidens before tackling a couple of Graded races; encouraging that he could raise his game to win a Naas rated hurdle (by 5l on heavy; beat Bright Legend) that's remarkably produced four of the last five winners of the Boodles; this has been the plan ever since and something may have clicked.
