Form & Verdict
Decent hurdler (rated 130) at his best and recovered from an early fall on his chase debut at Kilbeggan to finish second in a Tipperary beginners' contest; didn't count but similar level of form in much stronger Galway contest last week; jumping still needs to improve but this looks a lesser race.
