Form & Verdict

A case can be made on plenty of his Flat form but since finishing second to handicap snip Gaelic Warrior in a handicap hurdle here in February he's pulled up and refused to race (latterly at Haydock a week ago); much depends on what mood he's in.

Won on the Flat in France before embarking on his highly productive career over jumps for Willie Mullins; won three chases since last July and wasn't beaten far in a Grade 1 at Limerick over Christmas; below par since then, albeit in another Grade 1 and a strong handicap at the Punchestown festival; very interesting off this low a mark.
