Narrowly denied in a Downpatrick bumper in August; hasn't looked quite as effective over shorter trips on slower ground since; may be one for handicaps at this point.

Form & Verdict
A couple of decent efforts in maiden hurdles last season, including a 16l third of 21 in a maiden at the Christmas meeting at Leopardstown; has failed to justify his handicap mark in races at the Punchestown festival and at Leopardstown on his seasonal debut; however, if he can run close to his 114 mark he could win this.

Best run came when placed in Thurles bumper last season; poor form over hurdles this term prior to last time at Thurles when he was running well behind Clonshire River before stepping at a hurdle two out and coming down; may be able to build on that if none the worse for the fall.
