Form & Verdict

Career best when winning at Roscommon in June 2021 before a respectable fifth in the Midlands National at Kilbeggan; had been off 537 days prior to pulling up in a handicap hurdle in December but much more promise when fifth back over fences last time; well treated if he can build on that.
