Form & Verdict

Won an Irish point in October; tanked through the race on his rules debut at Doncaster (good; 5-4 favourite) in January only to find a previous winner a short-head too strong (pair pulled clear); the fourth that day has since scored over hurdles, giving the form a solid look; open to improvement and probably the one to beat.

His profile has been patchy since he won a novice hurdle at Perth (2m, good) in September 2022 and he doesn't look straightforward, dropping away tamely with blinkers added (retained) over 2m5f here three weeks ago; the return to 2m will probably help but he's still hard to be confident about.

Dug deep to deny the persistent Eloi Du Puy on heavy ground here in February, but he's worse off at the weights today and has to put behind him a poor run in very testing conditions at the Cheltenham Festival (tailed off by halfway) only ten days ago; others appeal more.
