Form & Verdict

Upped to 2m4f at Uttoxeter (soft) last time and raised his game markedly in close second of 12; back up 3lb with another big step up in trip and he is closely related to a pretty useful 2m6f/3m winner; player.

Well beaten in three Irish maiden hurdles (2m4f/2m3f) on testing ground this time last year; won Irish maiden point (good) in November but well held since, in hunter chases last two outings; has changed hands and left Turlough O'Connor; no form claims but he has a pretty lowly opening mark.
