A winner of Graded races over hurdles and fences in 2019 before struggling a bit when highly tried subsequently, Joseph O'Brien's French-bred 8-year-old was back to winning ways on his previous outing when taking a conditions hurdle at Killarney.
"He is a good horse and did it nicely," said Dempsey.
"I was eager enough to get ahead of (leader) Abbey Magic who was jumping right and the loose horse wasn't helping me either.
"He was long at the last but came up for me and in fairness once he had hit the front he did it well in the end. It was a good performance."
