Form & Verdict
Bumper winner on debut at 2019 Galway festival; placed in a couple of maiden hurdle starts subsequently; off for 13 months before fourth at Fairyhouse in late-2020, returns now after an absence of similar duration; chance in theory, but hard to know how he will fare against background of training problems.

Form & Verdict
Highest-rated runner in the field and has the benefit of Liam Quinlan's 5lb claim; however, 2-33 record over hurdles is off-putting; handicap form in recent months not exactly encouraging; allowance should be made for the fact he has been set impossible tasks in a couple of high-class novice events; Ferdia probably the stable's number-one here.
