Hard to know what he achieved in finishing second in a French bumper in June; certainly respected on his Irish and jumping debut in a less than competitive heat.

Beaten 20l when seventh in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham and a remote third at Fairyhouse on latest (16l behind runner-up Appreciate It); solid runs when chasing home Mullins-trained stars Dinoblue at Naas and El Fabiolo at Cork over 2m earlier in the season.

Versatile ground-wise; creditable second behind highly notable rivals at Naas (Grade 3) and Cork (Grade 2) since returned to chasing; filled same position in the Triumph Hurdle here two years ago; campaigned mostly at about 2m but pedigree suggests this return to 2m4f is well worth exploring and, being the youngest horse in the field, he has the potential to rate higher still; interesting contender.

Form & Verdict

Ran a cracker on her debut at Punchestown earlier this month when staying on strongly to get within 1/2l of the very useful Bell Ex One; might have been slightly flattered by that but that run clearly sets the standard here and with the allowances and claim she will be very hard to beat.

Useful juvenile hurdler last season; gave two good performances in Listed events in Britain, winner at Aintree and second at Doncaster, both events comprehensively dominated by Irish raiders; never in the hunt in the Fred Winter; no doubts about fitness following two Flat runs, though slight concern that she made so little impact in those two races.

Lost his way completely after making a winning debut in a Dundalk two-year-old maiden for Henry de Bromhead last year; signs of life over hurdles though, particularly at Gowran last time when looking like winning before a very awkward jump at the last; clearly has an engine but how he handles this soft ground is a big issue.

All wins at shorter but not beaten far at all when fifth over this trip (first attempt over it) at Aintree in May; this is slightly easier than the company he usually keeps and not discounted after wind surgery.
