2-5 over hurdles, including Grade 3 at Fairyhouse in December; ran creditably in the Triumph but finished a lot further behind Kargese than had been the case at Leopardstown in December when only a nose separated them.

1-6 on Flat, fairly useful form up to 1m5f; won hurdles debut at Killarney in August and first past the post (demoted for interference) at Listowel; gelded and took his form to a higher level in December with Grade 3 win at Fairyhouse (soft) and a close third in Grade 2 at Leopardstown (yielding); stayed on well last time (a nose behind Kargese) and has each-way claims.

Got off the mark on third start when taking a Curragh maiden over 1m4f despite hanging badly late on; unsurprisingly gelded since; has plenty to find but can't be underestimated from this source.

Went backwards on the Flat in Ireland prior to being sold for 25,000gns and gelded; is entitled to have come on for last month's hurdling debut (ordinary Fakenham maiden against his own age group back from six months off) but needs to improve.

Has a claim as the form horse here on this third behind subsequent Listed-placed stablemate St Vincents Garden in a 1m4f maiden Fairyhouse in June; however, his subsequent form casts significant doubts, especially his last of six in a handicap over this tip at Listowel.

Lightly raced 4yo who was twice placed in five starts last year for Jessica Harrington; never threatened at all after starting slowly on stable debut at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) but the headgear that worked in Ireland now returns; better expected.
