Exciting type; bumper and maiden hurdle winner; close second in a Grade 2 at Naas on his last start when beaten a neck by Inthepocket, staying on strongly to press the winner in the closing stages; close third in a Grade 3 at Navan the time before that; will appreciate soft ground and looks difficult to beat.

Form & Verdict
Promising type; upped in trip here; finished third on Irish debut at Gowran after six months off in what is traditionally a strong novice hurdle; that was an encouraging effort and he shaped like he would improve plenty; a fascinating contender.
