Improved from his first two starts when dead-heating to win a Naas maiden last time out, battling on well when headed and suggesting a return to this trip would probably be in his favour; more to come.

Getting better with each start; form of his fifth in Navan maiden has worked out well and the same can be said for the form of his seventh at Cork last time out; handicapper has given him a chance; wears first-time blinkers.

It was his first run for this trainer (who also saddles St Andrew's Castle in this) when 50-1 and distant last of ten at Hamilton (6f, good) a week ago; major improvement needed as he goes up to 1m for the first time.

Won a juvenile hurdle in early 2023 and was placed off mark 1lb higher than today's in Uttoxeter handicap (2m4f, good) last summer; ought to have been more competitive at Cheltenham on latest hurdling start in October, though, and returned from break with underwhelming Flat run last month.

Useful form in big handicaps in the first half of last season, third in the Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel last September and was a good winner of a Listed handicap at Fairyhouse in December; never in contention in a valuable Leopardstown event in February.

Very little between him and Viareggio on Cork running, when both were making a first nursery appearance; pair were inseparable in the market then, and it hard to be sure which has the better chance now; Nectarine is also in the mix with them on Cork running.

Form & Verdict

Best effort yet when fifth of 15 in a Curragh maiden last week, beaten roughly 5l; drops to 7f and needs more to defy this mark now tackling handicaps; pedigree suggests he might come into his own over a bit further.

Not short of experience but on the flip side, struggling to get the job done; that said, has claims in such a modest contest on the pick of his form and if the first-time cheekpieces can bring about some improvement, he should go well.
