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.

Good effort over 2m4f on the Old course here last winter but still met with defeat; almost no leeway in the weights since and not very tempting with a strike-rate of 1-26 over fences, having been well held behind Ginny's Destiny here in November and fallen on this course since (tough task).

Pulled up on his chasing debut in Ireland but he was a fair winner over hurdles there and made a fine start for his new yard back chasing when easily landing 2m Carlisle handicap in December; up 6lb but has more to offer and rates a big player with few miles still on the clock.

Only his second run in blinkers when winning at Bellewstown (2m1f, good) before disappointing on soft ground at Killarney; needs conditions to dry out, and yet even then he looks vulnerable in this company.
