Form & Verdict

Dual winning hurdler; showed little in three spins over fences last term although noteworthy that he was made favourite for his handicap debut at Thurles in February (beaten 40l); showed that wasn't his running when fourth in big-field handicap hurdle at Navan when tried in cheekpieces; not one to rule out.

Veteran won a hunter chase in 2021 and has been runner-up three times in handicaps; after two years off, excellent effort on stable debut/first-time tongue-tie when second of 16 to subsequent winner at Wexford (2m4f); went from the front there and could go well under similar tactics.

Form & Verdict

Out of a sister to Moscow Flyer and steadily progressive in beginners' chases, second over C&D and jumping better in first-time headgear when off the mark at Wexford; plenty of weight to shoulder on handicap debut but should go close.

115-rated hurdler so ideally treated by race conditions and getting the hang of chasing; best effort so far when third in useful contest at Ballinrobe and that form has been franked.

Posted two fine efforts since returning from a lenghty absence but a fair way off that level when put firmly in his place on his most recent visit to Ballinrobe, albeit in a hot affair; first-time cheekpeices now added and if he puts his best foot forward, the pick of his form suggests he should be a tricky customer.

Form & Verdict

In fine form last year when winning on the Flat, over hurdles and first two starts over fences when pitched straight into handicaps; his second to Final Orders in a novice event at Cork was also very creditable; nice comeback on the Flat in March but two very poor efforts over jumps since; chance if he bounces back.

Form & Verdict

Won a couple of chases last year and has been gradually running back into form lately; not beaten far when fourth of 17 at Tipperary but that was 2m7f and she was nearest at the finish; generally held up in her races and might find this trip a bit sharp.
