Had the distinction of beating the high-class Kilcruit in a Cork maiden hurdle last season, but his novice campaign ultimately revealed limitations; third in three small-field beginners' chases this season; has taken on smart opponents but nothing to suggest a strong chance against Sir Gerhard.

Point' winner made an impressive hurdling debut last year when slamming Kilcruit at Cork but wasn't able to repeat that form; however, made a very promising chasing debut at Down Royal on return and, if building upon that, should go close.
