Despite being sidelined for the best part of two years by injury, the nine-year-old built on a promising comeback run behind Bog Warrior at Punchestown with an impressive victory at Naas.

While Byrnes is not ruling out a tilt at the World Hurdle on March 14, he is more keen to wait for the Aintree Hurdle in April.

"We're not really any closer to making a decision about him," said the County Limerick trainer.

"He's back in work and cantering away.

"At the moment I would say I'm leaning towards running at Aintree, but I need to discuss things with the owner and see how the horse is."
