Form & Verdict

Failed to win on the Flat for Michael Bell on the Flat and rated a relatively modest 71; off for ten months before producing a smart performance to justify favouritism on his hurdling debut at Roscommon last June; opposition was weak, but every chance he will hold his own in decent company this year; drying ground should help.

Form & Verdict

In good form over hurdles in late-2020 winning a competitive handicap at Down Royal before taking second in a similar event at Fairyhouse; subsequent mid-field finishes in handicaps at Cheltenham and Punchestown were no disgrace; two runs over fences this season, including a good third behind the smart Blue Lord at Fairyhouse; leading chance in this company.
