Beaten about 16l when upped in trip and sixth of 21 in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham (2m4f, heavy) last month; however, he was behind some unexposed rivals and it could turn out to be a red-hot race; makes just his eighth rules start today and could have more to offer for top Irish yard.

Campaigned at 2m (on soft/heavy) since switched to hurdles; ties in with Answer To Kayf on October running and bagged Grade 3 honours next time; readily brushed aside by useful mare on latest start; pedigree and other factors suggest this step up in trip is well worth exploring.
