Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden but he's been giving it a good go over hurdles and it wasn't his first narrow defeat when edged out by an improver at Limerick (2m, soft); makes chase debut over a new trip (unraced beyond 2m5f) but on a competitive mark.

Very consistent this season, mixing hurdling and chasing including winning 2m4f handicap chase at Gowran and just touched off over an extended 3m at this venue; an excellent effort to take second behind Irish Grand National candidate Hartur D'Arc, when running from 6lb out of handicap, at Naas last time; 11lb lower than over fences and has Cian Quirke's 5lb claim as well.
