Form & Verdict

Both wins on the AW but latest turf form suggests he could well add to his tally in the near future, posting good runs at both Navan and Punchestown under today's rider; reasonable draw and looks another strong card for the stable to play.

Form & Verdict

Got the better of a reliable sort when winning off a mark of 47 at Leopardstowin in June; steady rise in the ratings in the interim but has held his form well, and went close to adding another win to his name back at same in July, the latter off only a pound lower rating than today; draw far from ideal but tends to be slowly away and will probably have to be ridden for luck in any case.

Best form had been here on good ground until posting a career-best RPR in winning a big-field handicap at last year's Galway Festival (yielding to soft); returns off a 5lb higher mark but fair shout if resuming where he left off.

Failed to trouble the judge in eight starts prior to finding substantial improvement to win narrowly when arriving on the scene with a sustained challenge close home at Punchestown; has had his issues, but clearly on song now and off a 4lb higher mark here, every chance he can go in again; feared.

Form & Verdict

Picked up for 9,000gns from Richard Fahey's stable and made a cracking start to life for her new yard when narrowly losing out at Punchestown 13 days ago when seemingly totally unfancied (33s); slightly longer trip here looks likely to suit and from a good draw, she now ticks plenty of the right boxes.
