Henry De Bromhead’s six-year-old was such a brilliant 16-length winner of the Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase on the Old Course 12 months ago and returns now as an established top-class chaser following his defeat of Chacun Pour Soi at Leopardstown, over two miles and a furlong, in December.
That would have been deemed as a minimum trip for him and going back up in trip again should see him taking another big step forward.
De Bromhead has chosen not run him again and, having needed his run at Navan on his reappearance, the trainer is very happy with his preparation and he will line up as a worthy favourite in the hands of his regular rider Rachael Blackmore.
Probably the one to beat.
