Most progressive over hurdles back in the spring and continued in a similar vein on chasing debut after 8 months off, landing 15-runner novice at Naas (19f, soft) 31 days ago. Lots more to come.

Career best when winning 6-runner novice chase at Tipperary (19f, good to soft, 11/2) on debut over fences 6 months ago for Joseph O'Brien. Second has done well since, but he'll need tons more here.

Useful chaser (won at Fairyhouse in November). Well-beaten fifth of 6 to Master Mcshee in Faugheen Novices' Chase (16/1) at Limerick (19.7f, heavy) 21 days ago, possibly amiss. Bit to prove.

Impressive when scoring first time up over fences at Down Royal in October. 9/2, held when second of 3 at Naas (16f) 14 days ago. Yard struggling for winners and there will be other days for him.
