Progressive over hurdles last season, fell on chase debut at Down Royal in November in a race won by smart stablemate A Toi Phil, worth forgiving that mishap.
Lightly raced gelding, easy winner at Tramore last month before being pulled up a fortnight ago on handicap hurdle debut. Goes chasing now and interesting contender.
Pulled up a week ago at Doncaster over hurdles on first run for 558 days, makes fencing debut now.
Ran a very good race on handicap debut at Limerick over Christmas, unseated his rider at the first at Thurles since. Should have more to offer if avoiding mishaps.
Hasn't shown much in two starts over fences and some questions still hover over his jumping.
Very disappointing when sent off favourite on chase debut at Limerick 119 days ago, surely has the ability to do significantly better in time.
Should build on promising chase debut over 2m4f at this venue three weeks ago, fourth of 12 then and likely to get closer now.
Notable Down Royal second over 2m4f at Christmas puts him in the mix, fell on handicap debut at Naas subsequently though drop to two-miles possibly not in his favour. Big player now upped in trip.
Mare ran a fair race on chase debut at Navan recently, entitled to do somewhat better in time.
