A leading hunter chaser for the last few seasons, winning at the Cheltenham festival last year having twice been runner-up there, and beating Vaucelet by just over a length at Punchestown; didn't really find his best form last season, a narrow victory over Le Malin at Naas his only success in five starts, and jumping let him down when failing to complete at Cheltenham and Punchestown; blinkers tried in those two races dispensed with and he's back in cheekpieces here.

Has become part of the furniture in this race and after two seconds he finally got his hands on the trophy when picking the pocket of Winged Leader in the dying strides 12 months ago; did well to win from where he was for much of the race (didn't jump or travel well) and he returns on the back of winning the same prep race at Naas (in a first-time tongue-tie); blinkers replace cheekpieces that have worked well; obvious claims.
