Half-brother to the talented The Bosses Oscar and cost 280,000euros in 2021; beaten in a maiden hurdle and a Naas bumper before showing his true colours with a clearcut victory at Navan (good to yielding), after which his trainer was highly complimentary; the third has since dotted up in a maiden hurdle; looks decidedly promising.

Acts on soft ground; has the notable honour of being the only horse to beat exciting prospect Ballyburn; did well to finish third (one place behind Mystical Power) in the Supreme most recently, having met trouble, and the bare form needs marking up; one of the main players.

Completed a bumper hat-trick prior to winning a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse (2m, soft; second attempt in this sphere) where he comfortably beat leading novice Ballyburn, who is otherwise unbeaten and is favourite for the Gallagher here on Wednesday; ran below expectations (finished only fourth) in Grade 1 at Naas since but the 2m4f was perhaps a factor; could well resume his progress back down in distance and remains of strong interest.

Only workmanlike when odds-on at Leopardstown (soft) and was floored on the line by an improving Elliott horse at Naas (yielding), having looked in complete control until the closing stages of that race; has a bit to prove on the back of that reversal but Patrick Mullins is giving him the benefit of the doubt (he rode Ballyburn last time).

Drops in trip here having taken the 2m4f route, touched off in Lawlor's Of Naas, third behind stablemate Ballyburn in Gallagher Novices' at Cheltenham and then below-par fifth in Mersey Novices' at Aintree, having raced keenly; not short of pace so can't be ruled out.

Acts on heavy going; close second in the Lawlor's Of Naas (2m4f) in January, then finished one place behind Jimmy Du Seuil in a Gallagher Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham (2m5f) that was dominated by this yard; brings Grade 1 form with those runs and is one of the main players.

Very useful in bumpers last season and won easily by 19l when back over hurdles at Gowran (2m, heavy) in November; headed on run-in and unable to justify favouritism in 2m4f Grade 1 at Naas (soft) in January but that form still gives him possibilities here and he remains open to improvement.

Had a long absence after winning at Galway in 2020; has been good and bad since returning, and it was a small-field affair that he picked up at Limerick; now has to concede weight to horses who look his superior.

Promising third in a maiden hurdle at Naas in February before getting off the mark in a five-runner bumper at Limerick the following month; faded from two out into a remote fifth on seasonal debut at Gowran; rated 125, should be able to do better.

Turned a few heads with how he came from virtually last to first at Leopardstown over Christmas but he's been a tad underwhelming since then, albeit in a Grade 2 back at Leopardstown and the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham; has no A Dream To Share to worry about this time and perhaps closer to the finished article than some of these.
