Form & Verdict

Three wins over hurdles, all at Ballinrobe in 2021; second at last year's Listowel festival his only placed effort from 14 starts over fences; fair fourth in a beginners' at Thurles last time and considerably better off at the weights with both the winner Mylestown Upper and the fifth Low Mileage; handles soft but really heavy ground would not be ideal.

Three wins over hurdles at Ballinrobe in 2021; won over 2m4f here in March on heavy and placed over 3m1f (good) at Limerick last time; one of hurdles wins was over 3m1f as well so this trip looks too sharp.

Form & Verdict

Had a couple of okay runs over fences as a novice last season but jumping was unconvincing; got it together back over fences here last time having been hurdling up until then this term; that was over 3m1f though and could be tapped for toe over this trip although deep ground will help in that regard.

Came through the point-to-point and hunter chase route; much improved on second start in handicaps when ridden by Blackmore at Thurles; 3lb higher for that second of 13 over slightly further on soft ground; should be bang there with a repeat.

Form & Verdict

Dual handicap winner last summer, including over C&D, and would have registered another victory over fences but for getting the last wrong at Leopardstown earlier this month; up 3lb for that; was touched off in a maiden hurdle here on heavy but pick of his form on better ground.

Form & Verdict

No bounce factor came into play for maiden hurdle winner when he scored on chase debut at Thurles on second run back from nearly two years off; much worse off at the weights with the fourth Oscar Romero but very unexposed and open to more progress.
