Form & Verdict

Useful middle-distance Flat performer, winning the Apprentice Derby at the Curragh in June (Impero, fourth) before a narrow defeat in a handicap at this track's festival meeting; yet to find equivalent form over hurdles and was on the back-foot from an early stage at Punchestown; premature to write off.

Form & Verdict

Placed four times on Flat for Donnacha O'Brien; not progressive by any means, but has been gelded now and could prove a useful recruit for Tom Cooper; perhaps the key question now is how he will fare relative to Common Practice who has an edge over him on the basis of 1m4f Curragh clash but has failed to live up to market expectations in two runs over hurdles.
