didn't need to be at his very best to follow up his impressive 2015 John Durkan win, but this was still a highly satisfactory winning return from 8 months off, particularly as this relative test of speed against 2 race-fit rivals didn't really play to his strengths; chased leader, typically travelled strongly, hit seventh (fluent otherwise), upsides back straight, produced to lead 2 out, kept on well, driven out (should strip fitter for this); will benefit from return to 3m+ and remains a solid Cheltenham Gold Cup contender (runner-up in last 2 renewals).

backed up his Clonmel effort and is clearly better than ever this winter, posting a career-best here despite again having to settle for minor honours; mid-division, jumped better than of late, travelled well, shaken up before 3 out, every chance from next, stuck to task.

ran creditably upped in grade, even though he failed to confirm Down Royal placings with Outlander (who was let down by his jumping that day); made running, went with zest, joined back straight, pressed on from 5 out, headed 2 out, already third when not fluent last (jumped well otherwise), no extra run-in.

faced a stiff task in this grade and is better judged on previous form (left poorly placed given how things unfolded here); dropped out, still plenty to do back straight, not fluent 5 out, never landed a blow.

failed to meet expectations on his first try outside novice company, looking rusty (particularly in the jumping department) after 9 months off; waited with, not jump well (tended to go left), lost touch from 3 out, not persevered with once held; worth another chance to build on his 2015/16 novice chase form (won all 3 completed starts).

In many ways the 2016 John Durkan was typical of most Irish Grade 1 events at present, with a select field made up solely of Willie Mullins-trained and Gigginstown-owned runners, but it was still a decent renewal in terms of quality, with the top-class performer Djakadam recording his second successive win in the race; the early pace wasn't overly strong, picking up from 5 out.
