Nine-year-old for Willie Mullins, who sends four to this contest on Tuesday. Makes his sixth start since being sent over fences, after winning numerous grade one hurdle contests during 2020/21. Boasts Grade One Future Champions Novice Hurdle (Leopardstown), Grade One Chanelle Pharma Novice Hurdle (Leopardstown) and Grade One Supreme Novices’ Hurdle (Cheltenham) over hurdles before his winning debut over the larger obstacles at Punchestown in December last year.
Has since finished in the top four on three occasions in graded races, including fourth in the Turners’ at Cheltenham last month and third in Gold Cup Novice at Fairyhouse earlier this month. Has to enter calculations for a top yard, who now send him over three miles. Not dismissed.
