Bred to be smart; won Irish point in good style last winter; two rules runs at Bangor, finishing second in a bumper in December (favourite) and runner-up on last month's hurdle debut (2m3f, soft); open to improvement over this longer trip and the first-time hood could also be beneficial.

Two wins in Irish points in late 2019 on testing ground; 760 days off before his third in a novice hurdle at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) in January; two lesser shows over about 2m7f have followed, which sees him back down in trip for this handicap debut with a tongue-tie enlisted; not ruled out.

2-3 in slow-ground Irish points in 2019 and, following a 760-day absence, made promising rules debut when third (behind Dom Of Mary) at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) this month; today's assignment demands rapid progress but market support will make him of interest.

Form & Verdict

Winning Irish pointer; showed promise over hurdles last winter and he ran well on his chase debut at Ayr in November (bad mistake six from home) after ten months off; still has potential back over hurdles and conditions shouldn't be an excuse; leading player.

Ran well when third on seasonal/chase debut at Ayr (3m, good to soft) in November, having raced in a clear lead for most of the way, but again raced too freely when disappointing favourite for a recent maiden hurdle; comes with some risk but, in the short-term at least, today's drop back in trip could be a good move.

Ran to fairly useful level when placed on consecutive hurdling starts in late 2020 (2m4f/2m3f, soft) but, following a long layoff, tired in home straight and was pulled up at Uttoxeter (2m7f, soft) last month; entitled to have benefited from that outing but still has something to prove here.

Showed ability in bumpers; has run to a fair level in two novice hurdles this winter, latterly chasing home a useful prospect at Newcastle in December (2m6f, good to soft); longer trip can help; open to further progress.

Well-beaten third on return from a 23-month absence at Bangor (2m7f, heavy; first start since wind surgery); is entitled to strip fitter for that comeback, and eased 2lb by the handicapper since; sports newly applied headgear, but likely to find a few of the others stronger.
