Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 5yo who won Kilbeggan maiden (2m3f, good) in first-time blinkers for Joseph O'Brien last May; well down the field in valuable handicap on latest outing in September and goes without headgear on today's stable debut (bought for £10,500 in January), but he'll be a tough nut to crack if somewhere near his peak form.

Form & Verdict

Won on hurdle debut here (2m4f, soft) in October and probably bettered that performance when close second at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) in December; not sure to be suited by the quicker ground here (recently withdrawn with good to soft deemed unsuitable) but, nevertheless, he's a strong contender.

Made a winning hurdling debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) in the autumn and he has run creditably over 3m+ on his last two starts; dropping back in trip should be no inconvenience for this prominent racer; leading contender.

Made a winning rules debut at Carlisle (2m4f, soft) last October; couldn't build on that here (2m3f, good to soft) next time, under a penalty; went very close to defying his penalty at Catterick latest (3m1f, good to soft), when a better jump at the last may have sealed it; big player.

Form & Verdict

Went close in a point bumper in 2020 but didn't show any significant promise in two rules bumpers this winter, and achieved very little when remote third on recent hurdling debut at Musselburgh (2m4f, good to soft).

Struggled off basement marks on the Flat last year and was pulled up (albeit on heavy ground) when back over hurdles in March; 7lb wrong here; look elsewhere.

Struggled in low-grade Flat handicaps (1m-1m6f) last summer, and hasn't raced over hurdles (0-4) since pulling up in a 3m maiden here (80-1) in May 2022; highly unlikely to be the solution.
