Form & Verdict

Ended last season with a commanding victory from Busselton over 2m5f at the Punchestown festival; went up 10lb for that, and another 3lb for finishing third behind Hewick in the Galway Plate; unseated at ninth when favourite for the Kerry National won by Busselton after Hewick's late exit; suited by the race conditions.

Useful for Willie Mullins, including when third of 15 finishers in the Galway Plate (2m6f, good; has won on soft/heavy) in July 2022; however, he has failed to complete in two starts this year, pulling up for new yard over hurdles in October, and has something to prove back over fences.

Point winner in 2019; won twice over hurdles including a wide-margin success at Thurles last November; a relative latecomer to chasing at the age of eight, but impressed in winning over 2m4f here three weeks ago; trip should not be a problem

Wore cheekpieces on last two starts when doing excellent late work to be second of 27 to Meetingofthewaters in a top handicap chase and fourth of 22 in a major handicap hurdle, both 3m at Leopardstown (soft; unproven on heavy); that suggested stamina reserves and his run in the 2023 Irish National (his only attempt beyond 3m) was creditable, albeit with four rivals moving away from him late on; not dismissed.

Point-to-point winner in 2018; missing for 1009 days before showing smart hurdles form in the 2020/21 season, winning a 2m4f Limerick maiden before finishing third in a Naas Grade 3 novice over 2m; won readily on chase debut last season after another year off; may not be a match for stablemate El Barra here.

Pulled up on his last three chase starts for Willie Mullins in 2022 but has found some form again over timber of late, winning at Fairyhouse off 125 before finishing runner-up in a Listed handicap hurdle at Cork last month from 10lb higher; 2lb lower chase mark helps and Kelly is good value for his 5lb; big player.
