Form & Verdict

Looked a promising sort when winning a Limerick maiden hurdle in 2021 but mostly disappointing since; did some decent late work in a 2m2f handicap chase here last month before jumping poorly at Punchestown; probably gets this trip and these smaller fences should suit but has questions to answer.

Formerly useful but just one chase win (in 2022) from 11 attempts and he ended his time with Gordon Elliott on a quiet note; well-held last of four finishers in a point for new yard and his BHA mark likely flatters him.
