Always a danger when he gets his own way upfront as shown when beating vaunted types in a Grade Three in March. Running well at Graded level until not lasting 2m5f latest. Back at 2m and in a small field he has leading claims.
Just touched off at Listowel last June and had every chance when falling at the last latest at Killarney in August. Handicap mark no issue and if he's ready after 9 months off he will go close.
October C&D winner under today's jockey remained on the whole competitive since without winning. Handicap form of late however doesn't mark him out as well treated.
2m4f course handicap hurdle winner well backed as if laid out for valuable festival handicap latest but fell at the first. Has won over fences so hopefully no repeats here and suspect he goes very close with a clear round.
Emphatic winner of this last year is 12lb higher now having won again since and ran a host of good races. Down the field in ultra-competitive handicap hurdle latest after a break but that should see him ready to make a bold bid here.
Only won once and that over hurdles (0-11 chasing). Several pieces of form entitle him to respect off this sort of mark and when everything clicks he will win a race.
