0-8; showed ability on good ground in April 2022; missed all of 2023 and shown nothing over fences in recent runs; could be fairly treated on handicap debut if he could find his best form.

raced wide, towards rear, dropped to last after 4th, some headway 5 out, in touch with leaders after 4 out, weakened 2 out, no impression when bad mistake and pecked on landing last, eased run-in

Losing run stretches back 21 months but step back in the right direction when fourth at Navan on penultimate start; running up with the pace when falling three out in a Cork event in which Cheerful Chap finished second.

Promise in bumpers and improved for further when winning a maiden hurdle at Limerick in December; tough ask in a novice hurdle since and may bounce back.

Overcame plenty of adversity to win a Limerick maiden hurdle in extraordinary fashion in December; probably a decent enough prospect but could well find this a bit too taxing at this stage.

Local hope has shown ability in bumpers including when fourth to promising type at Galway in October (second and third have won over hurdles since); respected on hurdling debut.
