Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who ran some solid races in defeat over hurdles; has failed to complete in both chase runs but he was competitive when coming down at Gowran (2m4f, soft/heavy) in a beginners' chase dominated by Ain't That A Shame (failed to stay in Saturday's National) and subsequent Fairyhouse winner Macs Charm (under top weight); considered.
