Form & Verdict

Tends to race freely but was able to get away with it when outclassing two opponents at Tramore last time; this is much more competitive but he has the raw ability to go close if racing more evenly.

Flopped in his first spell over fences a couple of years ago; winner of all four completed starts since returning to chasing last year, including a front-running win from Riviere D'Etel in a Grade 2 at Gowran in February; raced too keenly and ran of steam when pulled up in Fairyhouse race in which Fil Dor was a remote third.

Right back to her best when putting in a game effort to finish runner-up to Lossiemouth in the Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham, with the other three rivals in this contest in behind; return to quicker ground is fine but hard to see how she turns the form around with Lossiemouth given how easily she won that contest.
