Form & Verdict

Won sole point-to-point in November; has been running okay in bumpers when ridden by his owner, third of 10 at Fairyhouse in February being his best effort; hurdles debut and will probably be better for having obstacles in front of him again.

Third over 2m at Cork on debut in April; second of 12 (couple of subsequent winners behind him) over 2m3f here in early May; found little when fourth over same trip here later that month and has had a break; now tries further and pedigree sugests he should stay.

Unseated after a bad mistake over fences last time; showed some promise over timber earlier in the season, although it was a low-key handicap debut when last seen over hurdles; this trip is probably on the short side.

Course bumper winner last year and good second in a winners' bumper at Ballinrobe; not fluent and well beaten when unseating rider at the last on hurdles debut but much better when second to 122-rated rival over C&D last month and the one to beat on that form.
