Form & Verdict

Clear signs of ability in Irish points, every chance when falling at the last on final attempt; showed some promise in bumpers too; beaten a long way in three 2m novice hurdles but he's now up in trip and off a low mark on his chasing debut; has to be respected.

3-5 over fences, the latest win gained on seasonal debut at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft) in November; contests a stronger race here but is open to further improvement on this first attempt at 3m under rules.

Third in a point; unplaced in four goes over hurdles but there was a bit more promise in her 14l fourth of eight at Taunton (2m6f, good to soft; 25-1) on her chasing debut last month; no surprise if she builds on that.

Well beaten over hurdles at Wincanton 18 days ago, but she was previously a fair fourth on her chase debut in a Taunton handicap (2m5f, good to soft) and that penultimate run entitles this lightly raced 7yo to plenty of respect back over fences; has shown promise on soft; tongue-tie goes on.
