Form & Verdict

Clonmel maiden win came in such conditions and showed good attitude to land Fairyhouse novice last month; never really landed a blow upped in grade in 2m4f Grade 3 Thurles novice on latest, longer trip may not have suited; back to 2m and handicap company here.

Form & Verdict

Best run came when he was just touched off in 2m4f Cork handicap in December and not far off that form when third in similar Gowran contest on latest; races prominently so drop in trip may not be that much of a negative; needs more fluency in jumping though.

Very consistent this season, mixing hurdling and chasing including winning 2m4f handicap chase at Gowran and just touched off over an extended 3m at this venue; an excellent effort to take second behind Irish Grand National candidate Hartur D'Arc, when running from 6lb out of handicap, at Naas last time; 11lb lower than over fences and has Cian Quirke's 5lb claim as well.

Now 0-12 hurdling but several good efforts in defeat, albeit over longer trips, including good third in 3m Punchestown handicap; below best here last time over same trip in maiden; ground no problem but not sure this big drop in trip will suit.

One of two runners for these connections; maiden has run creditably at times over hurdles and fences, including several times at this track; poor on handicap chase debut last time but could bounce back reverting to hurdles.

Trip-versatile 7yo off the mark over 3m at Galway last autumn and gained second success at Clonmel 9 days ago when making all over 2m in testing conditions, battling well; heavy ground seems to be key so will appreciate any worsening in the ground.
