Form & Verdict

Has a solid dual-purpose pedigree; beat a decent field in striking fashion at Punchestown on debut and leading amateur retains the ride; entitled to be better still with that experience under his girth, so is one of the principals here.

Unbeaten; 2-2 in bumpers, 3-3 over hurdles, including the Royal Bond and the Supreme Novices', in which he was highly impressive in beating Facile Vega in a strong edition in which Irish horses filled the first eighth places; produced a stunning display on his chasing debut here at Christmas; looks an exceptional talent.

11st 7lb

J: Michael O’Sullivan

T: Barry Connell

Won his first three starts (2m, good/good to yielding) then landed the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) in December, when he did well to get up by a head having had to wait for room in the straight before a momentum-stalling mistake at the final flight; could be a key player.

Form & Verdict

Was nibbled in the market when a solid runner-up at Ballinrobe on debut to a stablemate of Follow The Brave; should have learnt plenty from that run and, receiving 7lb from the two penalised winners today, makes him of interest.

Form & Verdict

Better was expected on debut at Punchestown in April but was beaten 33l; however, put that right when a well-backed, easy winner at Ballinrobe last month; should keep progressing and is a major player.

Off the mark at the tenth attempt when scoring over C&D last month at odds of 40-1 under today's rider; 7lb higher now so questionable if he can back that up.
