Form & Verdict

Smart hurdler who made a promising start to chasing when impressing with his jumping in his beginners at Thurles in February; pulled up in Grade 3 contest at Naas in March; yet to win beyond 2m so this trip is a question mark; much the best of these over hurdles and suited by race conditions; tough to beat if he can get over the last day.

T: W P Mullins

Smart 155-rated hurdler, often highly tried; made a promising start to chasing when impressing with his jumping for odds-on win at Thurles in February; pulled up in Grade 3 contest at Naas in March; involved in controversial Killarney race last time, confirmed winner on the day, predictably lost race on appeal; needs to jump a bit better but sets a decent standard.

Classy sort was a Grade 1 winner over hurdles and was a solid third to State Man in the Morgiana Hurdle in November; jumped well when winning on chasing debut at Thurles recently and should have improved from that; deteriorating ground not in his favour.

Bumper and maiden hurdle winner; second start over fences after falling on debut at this track last August; useful hurdler; last seen finishing seventh in competitive handicap hurdle at Aintree last month beaten 8¾l; has the rating to be involved; big player getting 6lb from the main rivals.

Yet to win in six chase starts but has posted some good efforts in defeat; last seen finishing 14l third to Idas Boy at Cork 210 days ago over 2m4f; this looks a more suitable trip and he has more experience than most here but might need the run.

Won beginners chase at Wexford back in March over 3m1f before a solid runner-up effort back at that venue over 2m4f; failed to shine upped significantly in trip at Punchestown on previous start; dropped 1lb and down in trip; acts on all going; needs to bounce back.
