Form & Verdict

Has had his share of problems but right back on song when winning a Kilbeggan handicap chase 17 days ago, that off a mark of 85; won off a 4lb higher mark than this over hurdles back in 2020, but not the most reliable hurdler in recent seasons, in-form at least and worth a second look.

Flying it earlier in the year, winning over hurdles and fences before placing in a Flat race at Doncaster over an extended 2m; reported by the vets to be post-race normal after flopping back over hurdles at Down Royal latest (3-1, 94 days ago), and hard to know what to expect on the back of that disappointment, but unlikely to be done with just yet; remains a threat.
