Form & Verdict
Took a long time to win on Flat; has taken well to hurdling; far too good for Iberique Du Seuil at Galway in October, probably suited by being able to dictate; could manage only third when favourite for Irish-dominated Aintree event; runner-up Calvados has struggled since in race in which Britzka was third.

White Pepper

11st 0lb

J: L P Dempsey

T: Gavin Cromwell

1-14 on the Flat and 2-6 over hurdles; has interlinking form with a few of her compatriots and she's closely matched with Prairie Dancer on their recent placed efforts in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse; her improvement does appear to have plateaued and she has perhaps shown her hand more than others; has regularly worn this headgear.

Odds-on winner of a Killarney maiden hurdle (yielding) in August first time out but has had her limitations exposed in four subsequent defeats and reversing a 17l deficit with Brazil from their recent Naas clash is asking a lot of her.

11-race maiden on the Flat for different connections; soon off the mark over hurdles at Fairyhouse (yielding to soft) and held his own for a long way in a Grade 2 next time, only then to disappoint behind White Pepper back at Fairyhouse; blinkers and wind surgery may help matters but he'll need his best yet by some margin.

Won over hurdles in France and promising enough start for this yard despite jumping poorly at Fairyhouse last month; however, it was a backwards step in a novice back at that venue last time where he struggled with his jumping again and the handicapper has taken no chances with this opening mark.
