Form & Verdict
Point-to-point winner in 2018 was missing for 1009 days before showing smart hurdle form in the 2020/21 season, winning a Limerick maiden (2m4f) before finishing third in a Naas Grade 3 novice over 2m; being absent for a year is an obvious concern but has the raw ability to run well; market can be a guide.

Rated 130 over hurdles, last seen finishing third in Naas Grade 3 over 1m7.5f in March, and could make into a useful chaser; point-to-point debut winner is a brother to useful 2m-2m4f hurdle winner Squouateur; back from 293-day layoff and stable could have stronger claims with Jungle Boogie.
