Off the mark at the sixth attempt in bumper company, and did so with his best performance yet in a race that didn't look overly deep; downside is he hasn't got any hurdling experience but looks bound to be involved if taking to this sphere at first time of asking.

Owner-bred newcomer by Mahler; only sibling to race so far is bumper/2m hurdle winner Aeglos (peak RPR of 129); dam unraced sister to maiden point winner Red Mimi out of modest 2m-2m6f hurdle winner; one of two runners for local trainer; may need experience.

Form & Verdict

Third reserve; disappointing on Galway hurdling debut considering the promise he'd shown in bumpers; expect better with that initial experience behind him.

Tailed off in beginners' company before a respectable enough effort at Navan in Novemver; wears cheekpieces for his handicap chase debut and could be foolish to overlook.
