Form & Verdict

Point/hurdle winner who got off the mark over fences at Ballinrobe in August (2m7f, good); only a length away in his latest handicap (3m1f; good to yielding) and just a question of whether he'll appreciate rain-softened ground.

Progressive last year, making all at Tramore (2m5f, soft) in August and Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) in October; returned to Cheltenham last month for the Kim Muir (3m2f, soft) and made most, finishing third of 22 but he was 18l behind the runner-up Git Maker, so needs to step up on that and it's the furthest he's been.

Progressive last year, making all at Tramore (2m5f, soft) in August and doing likewise here (3m1f, good to soft) in October; fair seventh in 1m7f handicap hurdle at Naas 18 days ago, which could have put him spot on for today, and this lightly raced 8yo is one to be interested in for top yard.

Progressive horse last year; won narrowly at Tramore in August before following up gamely in a 3m1f handicap chase at Cheltenham in October; 11lb lower over hurdles but the big drop in trip is an obvious concern; looks the stable second string.

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.

Convincing winner of this 12 months ago off 12lb lower and won again here in April over hurdles; another good third over the smaller obstacles here on Friday but he's high in the weights back over fences.
