Form & Verdict
Useful handicapper on Flat, and also Listed-placed, reaching a peak rating of 99; holds a leading chance on the basis of two hurdles runs last December, notably when second in a 21-runner Leopardstown contest; second to the long-priced Gaelic Arc at Down Royal ten days; overall form suggests he may emerge best of the pair now.
