The six-year-old was snapped up by owner Alan Potts and his late wife Ann after winning his first two starts in National Hunt Flat races at Thurles and Gowran Park and was consequently a leading contender for the Champion Bumper at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival.
He disappointed at Prestbury Park and failed to open his account in five races over hurdles last season, but Tizzard expects him to make an impact as a novice chaser this term.
The Dorset-based trainer said: "He came here after Punchestown. Seeing how he jumps it wouldn't surprise me if we go straight over fences with him.
"He is a good horse, there is no two ways about that. He will be ready to go at the end of the month."
