Form & Verdict

Lost his way a shade over fences on last couple of tries but lightly tried at the same time and back with a bang with a hurdle win on his recent course visit; clearly in good spirits and the tongue-tie seems to have rejuvenated him, which should see him in a good light here; taken seriously.

In good spirits, reaching the frame at Killarney and Kilbeggan before finishing a decent fifth at Wexford when upped in trip; stamina looked a little iffy in the latter, but slightly shorter trip here should be fine, although no room for any jumping errors, which crept into his game at Wexford.
