Form & Verdict

Third in Irish point (3m, yielding) last November and he shaped with some promise in his two bumper runs in the spring; should have a future over hurdles but this looks a tough starting point in this sphere and he's bred to be suited by longer trips.

Dual novice winner this year (2m4f/2m1f) and she's run well to finish second in handicaps at Perth (2m/2m4f) in her last two starts; recorded an RPR of 118 last time and she's respected back in a 2m novice event; both wins have come on good but has form on most ground.

Normally consistent enough but 2m4f on soft ground wasn't ideal at Fairyhouse 13 days ago (cheekpieces left off, as today) and her two hurdle wins came in novice company last year; vulnerable on balance.

Form & Verdict

Versatile type who won a Downpatrick maiden (2m6f, good) in May, and after close seconds in his next two starts he got back on the scoresheet at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in August; that was a golden opportunity but he won with plenty in hand and just about sets the standard under a double penalty here; big player again.
