Form & Verdict

Very useful form over hurdles and fences, notably when winning the Welsh Champion Hurdle (handicap) at Ffos Las in October and when runner-up to fellow Irish raider Dads Lad in a valuable handicap chase at Cheltenham last time; potentially well handicapped, but 0-15 record at this venue is a major negative.
