Form & Verdict

Dual hurdles winner, rated 116 in that sphere; failed to make much impression in beginners' chases; shaped much better on handicap debut at Fairyhouse and confirmed that promise when much too strong for today's rival Alice Avril at Naas nine weeks ago; getting the hang of things and open to further improvement.

Has really got back on track over fences this season and only found one too good in his hat-trick bid here latest over slightly shorter; loses Brouder's 5lb claim here though and he'll need to improve again to defy his current mark.

Won a Navan maiden hurdle just over 12 months ago; stopped quickly and pulled-up on his chase debut at Punchestown in November after eight months off; more like it when third behind the market-principals at the same venue three weeks ago; capable sort but possibly flattered by his 130 hurdles rating.
