Form & Verdict
Beat Castlegrace Paddy in this race last year; arguably a career-best when second to stablemate Royal Rendezvous in the 2021 Galway Plate; again looked in good shape when beating Ballyoisin over 2m4f at Listowel; ground on the soft side for him when unable to make much impression at Clonmel on final start before a winter break; more suitable now.

Form & Verdict

Won on soft to heavy last term but really came on to the scene when winning Grade 1 novice at Fairyhouse (2m4f, yielding) in April and put up a career best when giving Allaho a fright in the John Durkan at Punchestown (yielding to soft) in December; has shaped with promise over 3m the last twice, while suggesting that trip stretches him; clearly Grade 1 quality and he may prove Allaho's biggest threat once more.

Form & Verdict
Former top-class bumper horse; has competed effectively at a high level, but his only two chase wins have been gained in a beginners' event and when facing only token opposition at Clonmel last month; perhaps his best run this term when second over 2m1f here in the Dan & Joan Moore Memorial.

Not delivered what he promised in two bumper wins (1-11 since) and no surprise he failed to stay at Leopardstown last time; this trip better and previous Dan Moore second (contested strong pace off 151) shows that he has a lot of ability; would like his own way; Townend on Cash Back.
