Form & Verdict

Useful Flat racer in Germany and very versatile distance-wise, from around 1m to 2m4f; needed to fare better than her 16l third in a Gowran maiden hurdle to warrant a second look at this level, but she'll win races sooner or later.

10st 7lb

J: Darragh O’Keeffe

T: Andrew McNamara

Useful Flat performer in Germany and left her hurdle debut behind when causing 33-1 upset at Fairyhouse earlier this month, getting the better of Blood Destiny in a Grade 2; no fluke about that effort but the runner-up let the form down to some extent in the Triumph; could have more to come.

Form & Verdict

Looked hot property in making all at Cork and here during the winter and both those races have worked out well; on the strength of all that he was sent off second favourite for the Triumph and yet ran no race, with his early exuberance not helping matters; he's a lot better than that and will be hard to beat if back on song in new headgear.

Won well at Auteuil (2m2f, very soft) in September on debut; just 8-1 for stable debut in Grade 1 at Leopardstown (2m, yielding) six weeks ago and should have come on since but he was readily left behind by four rivals from the home turn/ and ended up 21l behind winner Gala Marceau.

Form & Verdict

No great shakes on the Flat (1-12) but has looked a different proposition over hurdles and it could be argued that he failed to give his true running in the Fred Winter given that he had the first two behind when winning at Naas the time before; has to raise his game at this level but not without each-way hope.

Form & Verdict

Took five goes to win on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien but he posted a smart RPR of 97 when he did get off the mark; looked good in his first two hurdles before not giving himself a chance to show his form by pulling too hard in a Grade 2 at Leopardstown over Christmas; retains plenty of potential and he's the dark one.

Raced freely and made mistakes when performing miles beneath market expectations in the Fred Winter; a more accurate gauge of his true ability is his previous 12l third in a Leopardstown Grade 1 that was franked in a big way at Cheltenham; dangerous if returning to that form.
