J: Mr A Harvey

Made a belated breakthrough in a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan last July; tailed off in a handicap chase at the same venue in August; different proposition when scoring over a trip just short of 3m at this venue in October; well back under a hold-up ride brought down three out at Naas nine weeks ago.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden hurdle two seasons after a consistent run of form; failed to take to fences effectively last season and has been below his best in three handicap hurdle outings this term; rated 125 at his peak, now down to 114, but hard to be confident after Limerick failure.
