Form & Verdict

Point winner; some promise in bumpers; unseated on hurdle bow when too keen but settled better when winning in good fashion at Gowran in January; was good value for the winning margin that day, beating Sam's Choice by just over a length; can confirm the form with that rival but has more on his plate here and shorter trip isn't certain to suit.

Made all on chase debut (2m2f) in late 2022 before losing form; back near best on seasonal debut when second on heavy ground at Limerick; made a lot of the running when second to Ain't That A Shame in the Thyestes; poor run in a Cheltenham festival handicap, weakening when unseated at 27th in Grand National.

Made the running and was never seriously threatened on chase debut (2m2f, yielding) in late 2022 but career went off the rails later; recovered form in handicaps at 2m3f and 3m1f (also on heavy) of late, running up against a course specialist in the former and answering the stamina question with a bold effort since; likely to need extra back down in trip off this mark.

Form & Verdict

Promise in bumpers last season and made a winning return in a bumper; good runs in defeat in maiden hurdles since but no obvious reason why he reverses the form with Glengouly from last time and needs to raise his game in this.

Form & Verdict

Defied odds of 12-1 when winning a Down Royal bumper on debut at Christmas and followed up with a maiden hurdle success at Thurles in January (John Cannon second); only beaten 7l by a nice prospect (Journey With Me) since and that's the best form in the book; his future is probably over a bit further but he can go well again and yard are in good form.

Ex-Irish 7yo who has some fairly useful form on his CV but started off for Jennie Candlish with two very underwhelming chase runs this summer; not an easy horse to weigh up at present but drops in grade for today's hurdling return and enters calculations; refitted cheekpieces replace visor.
