Form & Verdict
Point-to-point winner and took full advantage of a good opportunity to make all in 2m3f bumper here last month; good opening effort over hurdles on softer ground at Galway since, plenty keen and not getting home but jumped well; back on better ground here and should go well.

Point-to-point winner graduated from hunter-chases to show improved form when third in C&D maiden hurdle in June; way below that form in first-time cheekpieces on softer ground at Wexford however and has plenty to find with Westcoastinformant on that; return to better ground should suit.
