Built on a promising fifth in a handicap hurdle when finishing runner-up in a 2m1f handicap chase at Navan (soft) last time out. One to note despite a 3lb rise in the weights.
Registered an impressive 14L victory in a beginners chase over an extended 2m at Clonmel (good) last month. Remains open to improvement and is one for the shortlist on handicap debut.
Dual winner over fences and ran well when runner-up in a handicap chase over 2m at Punchestown (good) in December. Returns from a break having finished sixth over hurdles at Punchestown (2m4f, good) the following month.
Winner over C&D in the past and ran well in finishing 3L third in a 2m handicap chase at Gowran Park (yielding) in November. Below that form at Thurles (2m2f, good) the following month and worth a check in the market following a break.
23 race maiden finished a fair fifth in a 2m1f handicap chase at Leopardstown (soft) early last month. Likely more needed if he's to take this contest.
