Form & Verdict

Smart bumper horse and started novice hurdle campaign brightly, notably when landing a Grade 2 over 2m7f at Limerick; no show in Grade 1 company in the spring but bounced back to form on final start when blinkered, fine second of 16 in 3m handicap here in April; has switched from Joseph O'Brien and cheekpieces now tried.

Form & Verdict

Two Punchestown wins last term, including when beating Bois De Clamart (8lb better off here) over this trip in January; not beaten far in Grade 3 novice at Thurles and was running a decent race for a longshot when coming down two out in a Grade 1 at Aintree; open to more progress and Blackmore rides for first time.

Form & Verdict

Lightly-raced 7yo was third on hurdling debut at Gowran; made hard work of landing fairly ordinary Limerick maiden; better form when third in valuable novice event at Punchestown festival and that race is working out well; fair bit on his plate here but open to more improvement; yard had Flat winner on Sunday.

This a more suitable target than last time when wrong at weights with Eric Bloodaxe and Captain Conby, finishing a safely-held third on return; shaped like he'd sharpen up for that run and now tries longest trip yet.

Form & Verdict

Heavier the better for 8yo who had fine time last season; landed two nice pots over fences at Gowran and finished off with easy handicap hurdle victory at Cork off mark of 125; was second to Captain Conby at Punchestown in January but 8lb pull at the weights means he's entitled to reverse that form; doubts raised by very lacklustre reappearance at Sligo.

Five-time winner ran a cracker when second to Longhouse Poet in conditions hurdle at Limerick this time last year but disappointing in light campaign since, dropping out quickly at Clonmel last month; hard to fancy but has his ground.
