Beaten 13½L when finishing eighth in a 2m handicap hurdle at Navan (soft) last time out. Has run well over an extended 2m5f in the past and interesting to see how he fares.

Winner of a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m5f on good ground here in October. Best effort in two subsequent starts came when 15L fourth over an extended 2m3f at Clonmel (good) the following month.
Showed ability in a 2m maiden event here on hurdling debut on good going in June last year but struggled in two subsequent outings. Market support would be notable upped in trip on handicap debut following an absence.
Placed in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Navan (yielding) in January and registered fair efforts in defeat in two subsequent starts. Trip and forecast ground should both suit and is one to note for a top yard.
Placed in a heavy ground maiden hurdle over 2m at Limerick on debut 12 months ago. DIsappointing since however including in handicap company the last twice. Others hold stronger claims.
Placed in a point-to-point from five starts but struggled since switching to Rules racing and beaten 33L at Thurles (2m, good-to-yielding) on handicap debut last month. Stepping up in trip.
