Form & Verdict

Won a 1m Naas maiden on only juvenile start; no further success; ran in good company at three; fair handicap form last year, notably when seventh in 30-runner Irish Cesarewitch; respectable seasonal debut when chasing home a 107-rated winner in a conditions race at Navan; just touched off in a Tipperary handicap last time, may go one better.

Frustrating sort at two and three when trained by Donnacha O'Brien, failed to prosper as a juvenile hurdler for Tom Cooper after showing initial promise; consistent on the Flat for this stable last year; arguably best display when second in a 1m5f maiden at Down Royal and third in a 2m1f handicap at Killarney in July; may again find a couple too good after a break.

Drops in class after six consecutive runs in stakes races; has a good chance at this level if reproducing the form of her second in a 1m1f Listed race at Listowel last September; fitness not in doubt having had three runs this term.

Form & Verdict

Point-to-point winner two seasons ago; won five from six between May and October, four of them over hurdles culminating in a 2m4f contest at Far Hills in the US; had warmed up for that trip with a 1m4f maiden win at Bellewstown; earned a respectable 89 rating for that, but that means he meets Taipan on 16lb worse than handicap terms.

Versatile regarding the ground and effective at 2m but his best efforts have been over 2m4f, such as when runner-up here on Boxing Day; soft ground will bring his stamina into play but there's still a query as to whether he will have the pace to keep tabs on the principals.
