Off the mark over 2m1f at Wexford 12 days ago, just holding a stablemate after clouting the last (third won at Wexford yesterday evening); just 5lb higher here and likely more to come over this longer trip although much different ground conditions here.

The money has come for him since going handicapping and only beaten a neck at Wexford; didn't like his finishing effort when beaten 8l at Roscommon on Monday after he had loomed up going like a winner, but maybe he got there too soon; expect him to be played much later here.
