Form & Verdict
Rewarded for overall consistency with Thurles maiden win over a trip just short of 3m; didn't settle in a slowly-run novice at Wexford latest when well below best; likely truer pace her should suit and no surprise if he bounced back; also due to run at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

Form & Verdict
Much improved last month, winning at Clonmel and Down Royal before taking a further step forward when second over today's C&D, keeping on well on ground probably plenty quick enough; slightly easier ground here in his favour and should again be thereabouts.

Third reserve; very progressive of late with two wins and two seconds, up 21lb in total; finished a place ahead of subsequent winner Bugs Moran when runner-up over 3m at Cork last time on good; 2m4f on decent ground could be a struggle.

Solid fourth in a Fairyhouse maiden (Gd/y) in January before a decent run on handicap debut (hvy) last time at Navan; should handle this ground too and holds a solid chance.

Has progressed this winter and produced his best effort yet when third of 20 (beaten roughly 8l) at Navan last month on handicap debut; different ground here but 3lb higher mark looks workable and he's one to consider.
