Form & Verdict
Dromahane point winner for Colin Bowe in December 2020; two bumper runs confirmed a fair standard of form; this looks like a good piece of placing by Gordon Elliott following his fifth in a 25-runner contest at Naas last month; this opposition is significantly less demanding.

Gargouille

Has been much improved lately, finishing runner-up in a Clonmel maiden hurdle before looking likely to score in a handicap there when falling two out; 2lb higher today but must go close if none the worse and handling this faster surface.

Has began to find his feet in recent months, scoring on handicap debut latest at Tramore over 2m4.5f when earning 6lb rise; rider's 5lb claim helps offset that penalty and interesting to see how he fares over the longest trip he's ever faced under rules; leading player.
