Form & Verdict

Won four handicap hurdles in the second half of last season, starting from a base of 85; promoted to 115 after Cork win in March; sure to be better for his recent seasonal debut at this venue; 0-13 chase record is a concern but he has twice finished second off this mark, and is now 20lb higher over fences.

Three-time hurdle winner; runner-up in two of her three handicap chase starts before going one better over a furlong shorter here five weeks ago; that was a good effort on her first run since July and the runner-up Ciankyle franked the form at Thurles last week; 7lb rise may not be enough to prevent a follow-up success.

Good effort over 2m4f on the Old course here last winter but still met with defeat; almost no leeway in the weights since and not very tempting with a strike-rate of 1-26 over fences, having been well held behind Ginny's Destiny here in November and fallen on this course since (tough task).

No ground worries; just one win from his 25 chase starts but that came in July and he's been placed in his three races this autumn; the last two were over 2m4f at this track but this is a much better race and he's 7lb out of the handicap, so faces a stiff task.
