Form & Verdict

Jumping needs to be more polished, but has shown enough promise in bumpers and maiden hurdles to suggest sound prospects on handicap debut, especially if first-time cheekpieces help to bring about improvement; Killarney run in May attracted the attention of the stewards, fair third at Tipperary in June.
