Form & Verdict

Dual handicap winner last summer and would have registered another victory over fences but for getting the last wrong at Leopardstown last month (2m1f) in race won by Tyre Kicker; not at that level at Wexford since although hampered and heavy ground possibly not ideal; top-weight respected but others possibly better treated.

Form & Verdict

Both hurdle wins last season came at 2m4f; yet to reach similar heights after seven attempts chasing, easily the pick being narrow Fairyhouse defeat by Sunnyvilla; none too fluent and never really landed a blow in competitive Navan novices' handicap latest when stamina test could have been beyond him; could bounce back over this shorter trip with talented rider's claim a positive.

Really getting the hang of things over fences, recent hat-trick of wins began over C&D and ended with narrow Leopardstown win over much shorter trip, having been left in lead at the last by Bridewell Lad's demise; needs to improve again to continue the sequence but return to this longer trip sure to suit.

Both chase wins have been in successive runnings of Leopardstown amateur handicap over this trip; held by the handicapper so far this season but showed a bit more in finishing fourth when attempting hat-trick bid at Leopardstown last month off reduced mark; back down to his last winning mark so can't be ruled out.
