Form & Verdict
Narrowly denied in a point and promising form under rules, only finding one too good at Sligo and better form when beaten a head at Fairyhouse in December; 2m4f on heavy too testing when last seen but may bounce back here having been freshened up with four month break.

Well beaten on debut at Punchestown but a much better effort when only beaten 7l in a bumper over 2m2f at this course a month ago; this shorter trip shouldn't be a problem and should go close.

Half-brother to Come On Teddy; consistent in four bumper outings and just about a career best when a distant second over this sort of trip at Naas in January; may do better when stepped up in trip handicapping.
