Form & Verdict

Keen sort has been hurdling this season, promising comeback win hasn't been built on; back chasing here first attempt at this trip over fences but tight track should give him every chance of seeing it out although needs to settle better than of late: this looks a golden opportunity.

J: Paul Townend

T: W P Mullins

Failed to build on initial promise as a chaser two seasons ago; had a spell over hurdles before prospering when sent back over fences at Tramore last spring; impressed with his jumping at Galway and Killarney but that ability deserted him in a match at Listowel; obvious chance here on his best form; acts well on a sound surface but has won on soft-to-heavy.

Has always had the ability but his headstrong characteristics have been used to his advantage on his last three starts; has particularly impressed with his jumping and his ability to sustain a gallop at Galway and Killarney last twice; will be hard to peg back here.

Ground okay, trip possibly stretches him but a very big ask at these weights.

Infrequent winner but ran loads of good races chasing/hurdling last winter including first time out and ground no issue; new trainer fits a tongue-tie.

Form & Verdict

Sole win under Rules came in maiden hurdle over this trip over two years ago; lightly raced in recent years and overall disappointing (struck into himself on latest); hard to have confidence in although no stamina issues.
