Form & Verdict

Twice second over hurdles, well beaten both times, at Fairyhouse last December and at Kilbeggan in June; possibly a little fortunate when scoring a 33-1 win in a staying handicap on the Flat at Galway, but that was still a good resolute display; hurdle race at same venue three days later may have come too soon, or perhaps softer ground to blame; strong contender now.
