Form & Verdict
Yet to be out of the frame for Willie Mullins and having the most made of his ability; won a Tramore bumper and no match for a better fancied stablemate in a maiden hurdle at the same venue last month; not one of the leading lights at Closutton but tries hard and should run his race.

Good-ground bumper winner who got off the mark over hurdles at the fourth attempt in a Fairyhouse novice (2m, soft) last month; lightly raced and open to further improvement for his leading Irish trainer, but he certainly needs to step forward today and also jump better than last time.

Gained an overdue success in an ordinary Galway maiden hurdle in September; dropping back in grade having been no match for Dysart Dynamo in the Grade 2 Moscow Flyer Novice Hurdle but his win record of just 2-34 is not encouraging.

Expensive purchase out of Colin Bowe's top-class nursery after winning his sole point-to-point in 2019; disappointing since last season's debut second in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse; hard to be confident since he has clearly failed to progress as expected, but may now find his level in handicaps.

Ran twice on the Flat in France last summer; made all to justify favouritism on hurdling debut in seven-runner event at Toulouse in October; good Flat pedigree, dam an unraced half-sister to 2010 Prix de Diane winner Sarafina; interesting recruit for Pat Fahy.
