Half-brother Rathvilly only raced three times and didn't show much. Beaten 97L on a disastrous debut at Cork earlier this month when finishing last of 15. Plenty to prove in this company.

Not without ability on the Flat but it was all at sprint distances and has consequently struggled in two maiden hurdle starts so far including a 54L defeat last month at Cork. Hard to fancy.
