Form & Verdict

Top bumper performer the season before last, second at Cheltenham and winner of Grade 1 at this venue; not at the same level over hurdles last term; too keen and didn't jump well when a remote third in the Supreme Novices'; jumping again left a lot to be desired at the festival here; has a bit to find with Journey With Me on the basis of a maiden hurdle clash.

Former Grade 1 course bumper winner has not prospered over jumps in the manner expected; did not have much to beat on chase debut over C&D in November; sights lowered after two Grade 1 attempts, Paul Townend's choice over identically-rated stablemates.

Struggled throughout last season, and pulled-up in a point last month; ran a blinder at 66-1 on his chasing debut, losing out in a tight finish; has an unenviable task against high-class recruits.

Placed several times over fences before getting off the mark with wide-margin success in a Tramore beginners' event in August; typically a front-runner, failed to sustain his effort in a 2m4f handicap at Gowran in September; did well under the same tactics when third in a rated contest at Punchestown last time

Form & Verdict

Three-time hurdles winner, best display when winning over 2m4f at Fairyhouse almost a year ago off 126; faced stiff tasks for the remainder of the season; struggled badly on chasing debut at Galway, second attempt was much more like it.

Three wins over hurdles with a mark of 129; decent effort when third in a novice chase at Galway in October; well beaten twice since but has a 7lb lower chase mark for his handicap debut; interesting.

Progressive in handicap hurdles in the first half of last season including course success; promoted to 130 after a Naas win; ran only twice after that, and now has to take on two very talented recruits on his chasing debut.

No wins since 2021 and he's failing to complete in four of his last five runs (all over fences); rated higher over hurdles and he's been off 191 days so probably best watched.

Three-time hurdle winner the season before last but jumping has been a major problem in this sphere, including last time when only 13-2 for Listed handicap at Ballinrobe; not ruled out but obvious risks.
