Form & Verdict

Hit and miss in his short career to date; he's a leading contender judged on a 30l win in an Irish point and a fine second over 2m3f here (good to soft) four weeks ago; heavy defeats in two runs in between mean confidence is restricted but he still commands respect for an in-form yard.

Like stablemate Sporting Mike he's proving reliable, and his second to an odds-on shot at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) two weeks ago was a personal best; may not have reached his limit just yet and he's high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner (3m, good to yielding); has taken well to hurdling, building on debut when easily making all at Wetherby (2m5f, soft) at the end of March; Jack Hogan's 5lb claim helps offset a penalty and she's open to plenty more improvement; could be the answer.

Well beaten on both hurdling starts in the spring but his fourth at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) last month was much more encouraging; almost certainly needs to improve again to make a winning handicap debut but that's possible, and this move back up in trip ought to suit.
