Form & Verdict

Smart bumper winner is yet to score over hurdles but looked to be cruising when falling three out at Sligo in August (well-backed); solid third in a better quality handicap at Listowel last time and should go close here off 2lb higher.

Just 1-17 under rules but capable of smart form on his day, notably when third in a competitive handicap hurdle at Killarney (2m1f) two starts ago; well below that form over 2m4f at Listowel last week and stamina is a question.

Sole win came in a Thurles maiden hurdle three years ago; consistent and frustrating in more or less equal measure since; only one pound out of the handicap; entitled to improve from his recent Naas run (his first after a break); overall record suggests he will find a few too good.

Has been in great form on the Flat lately, winning twice and in the frame twice; had previously got back to winning form over hurdles when taking a Downpatrick rated event in August; raised 8lb for that so will have to transfer his Flat improvement to this sphere.
