Analysis

Tony Martin: "I think he's very good. It just took him a long time to learn and grow up. He was very keen and free, but when he put it together in a bumper at Naas last year he won well. I probably shouldn't have taken him to Liverpool (Aintree) last year, as mentally he wasn't ready for it. He had a nice run at Christmas and benefited a lot from it. He's plenty good enough to be entered up for the good novice hurdles."
