Form & Verdict

Kilbeggan winner in May has posted fine runs in defeat in the interim, and now 12lb higher than winning mark, but only a youngster and probably safe to say she has a fair bit more left in the locker; admirable sort with sound claims.

Five-time winner broke a lengthy losing run when back on top at Ballinrobe 23 days ago; 6lb rise for that perhaps not as big a worry as inconsistency these days but, if he backs up here in similar form, he won't be easy to contain; comes with a few risks all the same.

0-5 in Irish points and seven defeats over hurdles there included three handicaps; however, the signs were more encouraging when beaten 14l in a 2m1f handicap at Sedgefield on November's debut for this yard, keeping on after getting outpaced; this track could be more to his liking.

Poor enough hurdling profile although in his defence he did shape quite well here when third last year; failure to back that up worries and went down the point-to-point route when last seen out during the winter.
