Form & Verdict

Point-to-point winner for Pat Doyle met with defeat on Rules debut behind Doctor Bravo in bumper here in December but has won both starts since; Thurles bumper and overcoming some novicey jumping in 2m3f Naas maiden hurdle to win going away; should improve with experience and longer trips.

Sent off favourite but didn't always jump with fluency when fading into 30l seventh in this month's Irish Grand National (3m5f, heavy), which was his first run beyond 3m; something to prove today but this lightly raced 7yo looked very promising previously and represents the all-conquering Willie Mullins (one of three for yard); possible he'll bounce back with bold show.

Runner-up on debut in bumper here last season and solid start over timber when chasing home a long odds-on shot at Navan in February; better level of form in 2m2f Grade 2 Kelso novice without really landing a blow, suggesting this longer trip will suit; much more on his plate here though.

Made his debut only in December and won a big-field maiden at Down Royal (2m1f, soft) in January on his second hurdle start; he was receiving weight from the first two when third in the Grade 3 Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran (2m, soft to heavy) last month but it was still a highly creditable run behind two experienced class acts in Fil Dor and Sharjah, and this very lightly raced 6yo could have more to offer for his top trainer; interesting.
