Yet to prevail in 15 appearances. He has featured nine times over fences, including when unseating his rider last time at Down Royal; has each-way claims given the experience he has in chasing.
Well beaten on his first two chase starts and unseated rider on his latest effort at Tramore does not suggest he is ready to win over fences just yet.
Had limited success in point-to-points earlier in his career but failed to translate that ability to hurdling; chasing may suit better but hardly in the greatest of form.
Runner-up in a Tipperary bumper (2m4f, yielding) in October, and showed similar promise on his hurdles debut at Down Royal (2m6f) next time. Not as good since, but can't rule him out of the frame on chase debut.
Has had a very disappointing career so far, generally finishing in the bottom half of contests or falling; hard to make a case for.
Maiden of 14 races under rules and positives few and far between recently. Tailed off at Punchestown (2m, yielding; 20-1) on New Year's Eve returning from a layoff and put in tame performance five days later at Naas.
Reasonable handicap hurdler who won at Gowran Park on her penultimate start; pulled up last time out at Leopardstown; can go well if taking to the larger obstacles.
Reasonably consistent hurdler and another who won on her penultimate start; very disappointing last time out at Tramore when sent off favourite; another who should go well if taking to fences.
