Form & Verdict

Three wins as a novice last season including two Listed mares' contests, one of which was over C&D; fair sixth in mares' novice at Cheltenham; only beaten 3l when fifth of 20 on handicap bow at Galway and would have finished closer but for some sloppy jumping late on.

Four-time hurdle winner; last win came in a Listed handicap at Killarney in August before a fine run in defeat under a big weight at Listowel; found to have made a respiratory noise last time in a Listed hurdle at Punchestown, a race also contested by Broomfield Bijou; definite chance with tongue-tie fitted; good 5lb claimer.

Progressed well over hurdles once he joined this yard and his form in that discipline is right up there in this company; finished a well-held second on chase debut at Cork (2m4f, soft) but that was a strong-looking Grade 3 and the winner is decidedly useful; this shorter trip won't faze him (travels strongly; settles better these days) and there's lots to like about his prospects.
