The now 10 year old spearheads the betting for Willie Mullins in the colours of Rich Ricci. Despite a few blips on his record after a few failed attempts of making a splash over here in the UK.
His record in Ireland however is near faultless as a 2 mile chaser. A lethal seven wins in only eleven chase starts is some feat.
His only defeat in Ireland coming 2nd to an almighty performance from A Plus Tard. He does boast a perfect two from two in this race and dethroned Min here in 2020 in what was probably a career best.
Disappointing in the Champion Chase last season and failing to spark at all in the Tingle Creek in December, staying on home shores is likely the key to success.
His form outweighs anything else in the field and if he’s back to his brilliant best he’s going to be near impossible to catch.
The right favourite.
