Second behind Fakir D'oudairies on debut before finishing third of 23 at Naas and getting off the mark in a Listowel maiden last month. Hottest task to date but given yard he hails from there is almost certainly more to come.
Two places behinf Fast Buck on hurdles debut but got off the mark next time up at Ballinrobe before a narrow defeat latest when upped to 2m4f at Down Royal. Bold bid again expected.
79-rated Flat performer got off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles where he gradually warmed to his task and led shortly after the last. Davy Russell who rode he and Road To Dubai latest keeping faith and that may be significant.
More exposed or experienced than most depending on how you look at that having won two of his eight and showing smart form. Represents yard in great form but suspect he is vulnerable in this company.
Behind smart stablemates Band Of Outlaws (twice) and Fakir D'Oudairies in his three starts so far. Latest effort in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham not his true running but still has to be considered the least likely winner here.
