Form & Verdict

Has very modest strike-rate under rules (1-31) but was second in two chases last month (2m7f/3m1f, yielding) and again when switched back to hurdling nine days ago (2m7f, good); likely to be right in the thick of things again here.

Took advantage of low hurdles mark to win easily at Limerick in July (2m6f) before fading tamely back over fences at Kilbeggan; ideally wants it softer so any rain welcome and 12lb higher for Limerick win.

1-15 over fences, the win gained off 11lb lower at Bangor (3m, good to soft) in the autumn; gave pretty good account when fifth of 12 at Down Royal (3m2f, yielding) six weeks ago but may find others better handicapped again here, and confidence in him would be higher on slower ground.
