Form & Verdict

Winner on debut in France, and 2-2 for Gordon Elliott before his suspension was imposed; odds for Grade 2 Fairyhouse event, but failed by 3l to concede 3lb to the progressive Jeff Kidder; meets that rival on 7lb better terms now, but lacks the advantage of race-fitness.

Favourite for this last year (soft) when close third behind Sire Du Berlais and Dashel Drasher; not quite at his best next time when 3l fourth in Grade 1 Champion Stayers at Punchestown; has run just once this season, when showing very classy form to win the Grade 1 Hatton's Grace at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft) in December for the second successive season; only seven and may be a stronger sort than 12 months ago, which could enable him to come out on top.

French import; won his first five starts over hurdles, including Grade 1 wins at Leopardstown (for Gordon Elliott) and in the Triumph on debut for this yard; sent off favourite for Punchestown Grade 1, but was fighting a losing battle a long way from home; no immediate excuse emerged, but clearly not his true running; good record when fresh.

Form & Verdict

Top-class juvenile hurdler last season, winner of Boodles at Cheltenham, a Grade 2 Fairyhouse event (beating Teahupoo) and Punchestown Grade 1; on the latter occasion beat Zanahiyr, a ready odds-on Grade 2 winner on his reappearance at Down Royal; concerning that he has failed to justify favouritism in three Flat handicaps, but this is his game.

Jumping left a bit to desired on his only run in France early last year; still looked as if he had lessons to learn when making a winning Irish debut at Gowran in March; clearly has potential to mature into a smart type, but this is very demanding at this stage of his career; hooded.

90-rated middle-distance handicapper on Flat; no match for a Gordon Elliott-trained favourite on hurdling debut at Navan in September; comfortable winner of a Gowran maiden last month, despite tendency to jump to the left; may be better suited going left-handed now but faces big task against well-established members of last season's juvenile crop.
