Form & Verdict

Had shown very little prior to a career best effort when only beaten a head (Finnians Row fifth) in 2m4f Down Royal handicap chase in January (soft), finishing strongly; lost all chance when badly hampered at the start here early this month and that run has to be ignored; this step up in trip could suit and major player.

Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden after 24 starts but several decent efforts in handicap hurdles this season and when back chasing at Clonmel early this month, running in snatches but finishing his race out well to finish third over 2m7f (soft); not a fluent jumper of fences but definite claims.
