Followed his first win over fences at Wexford (2m4f) with a novices handicap win at Naas over the same distance. Upped 6lb for that and still going well next when taking a crashing fall at the seventh. Capable if no ill effects from that fall.
Three-time chase winner but last of them back in 2017. Nine races this season rarely suggested next win is imminent and others make more appeal overall.
Decent record in 2016 and 2017 but no wins since then and two runs this season seen him a remote seventh followed by pulling up latest before three out. Makes little appeal at present.
Moderate strike rate overall but arrives after sound efforts finishing fourth and third respectively and received 1lb back for each. Likely in the mix here but still vulnerable to less exposed types.
Kilbeggan winner in April proceeded by fifth here and fourth at Limerick. Handicap looks high enough based on fifth here so likely again find a couple better treated.
2m6f Galway winner in October unseated and fell in next two. Completed last three however and Naas second two starts back would offer every chance now back up in trip. Bad error here latest costly but claims with a clear round.
