Form & Verdict

Two wins over hurdles and seemingly a better chaser; not beaten far behind top-class Impervious at Wexford before he was outclassed in a Grade 1 at Limerick; will appreciate the drop in class here with trip and ground fine; looks a contender.

Sole win came in a Thurles maiden hurdle three years ago; consistent and frustrating in more or less equal measure since; only one pound out of the handicap; entitled to improve from his recent Naas run (his first after a break); overall record suggests he will find a few too good.

Proving to be a much better hurdler than chaser, winning a Downpatrick beginners before he was touched off in a similar contest to this over C&D in November; slightly below that form twice since but a leading contender if able to reproduce his last effort here.
