Has only completed twice in his last six starts including when pulled up last time out behind Biddy The Boss; does have talent but difficult to know when he is going to put in the effort.
Front runner who advertised her well being when a runner-up over course and distance in December before winning well at Fairyhouse earlier this month; stiffer task at the weights but clearly in good heart.
Had a fair level of form in France and showed a good attitude when finishing behind Biddy The Boss at Fairyhouse recently; he should have the beating of that rival today at the weights and very much one to consider.
Justified going off as the 7/2 favourite on his last start over fences when he scored in a 14 runner handicap contest here (2m6½f) by 5½L. Has been raised 11lb for that win. Worth consideration again though.
Won this race last year off a 8lb lower mark; was previously known for consistency but struggled slightly after that win, has been hurdling of late and won at Fairyhouse in December; obvious chance.
First time cheekpieces failed to spark a revival at Leopardstown last time out and he is still looking for his first win over fences; jumping needs to improve but difficult to write off completely.
