Found the step up to 3m to his liking when a gritty winner of a handicap chase at Listowel; needs to rebound from a disappointing run in a Down Royal contest in which Archies Charm finished fourth.

Found the step up to this trip very much to his liking when a game winner of a handicap chase at Listowel; up 7lb for that but has a good 5lb claimer on his back here and should go close.

Now 0-12 over fences but 3m2f appeared to stretch him last time at Down Royal (May) and he had been knocking on the door from 2m5f to 3m; appears to have little in hand off this mark but hard to rule out.

Is 2lb out of the weights so therefore 10lb higher than for his win at Killarney (2m7f, soft) but that was pretty comfortable and he's been rated higher in the past; up in grade this time but by no means ruled out.

Not a great strike rate and hasn't won since Sligo beginners chase win in 2022; entitled to come on from last month's Tramore comeback run (behind stablemate Invictus Machin) so has to be respected from such an in-form yard and likely approaching a competitive mark now.
