Form & Verdict

Trainer has 7pc hit-rate last five seasons so this one clearly above average, winning on debut, running well in valuable bumper and scoring at 14s on hurdles bow at Thurles; ran on yielding or better; has about a stone to find but well-bred and should be improving.

J: Phillip Enright

T: Oliver McKiernan

Off over a year; won his first two starts over hurdles last term and was a good second to Irish Point at Naas before being well held in a pair of Grade 1 novice contests; up in trip with headgear combo tried; clearly faces a stiff task.

Form & Verdict

Sole Flat win came on heavy (1m, RPR 92); developed into high-class hurdler, winning Fred Winter last term and better for reappearance when slamming high-calibre Fil Dor at Naas (yielding to soft); hard to pick any negative even if he might not want it bottomless.

J: Aidan Kelly

T: Padraig Roche

Won the 4yo handicap at 2022 Festival (good to soft) on his sole appearance at Cheltenham; his two hurdle races in 2023 and one last month were all poor, having been gelded before the latter, but there was a Flat win at last year's Galway Festival, so he might not be done with just yet; this is his first foray beyond 2m1f.
