Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 5yo who began hurdling career with two promising efforts last winter; disappointing in two handicap hurdles this autumn (cheekpieces added last time) but his Irish point win in spring 2021 bodes well for his chasing prospects.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.
