Consistent sort over timber and encouraging enough chase debut when sixth in beginners' at Limerick (beaten 20l, RPR 110); best hurdle form is over a bit further than this and may find this sharp enough on fast ground.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful on the Flat but has never really matched that over jumps and is just 1-23 over hurdles; made a promising start to his chase career over 2m4f here but it was a lesser effort when tailed off at Kilbeggan on Sunday and probably needs further than this these days.

Point winner and progressive sort under Rules, getting off the mark when making all in a maiden hurdle at Down Royal last month; he's the one to beat if he can translate that form to fences on chase debut and his experience in a point should help.

Form & Verdict

Won his maiden hurdle at this venue; showed he retained plenty of ability when fourth in a beginners' at Wexford in October but has struggled subsequently and didn't beat a rival on debut for this yard over hurdles last month; while he's a big player on his best form, he has questions to answer at present; best form has come on much softer ground.
