Form & Verdict

Decent novice hurdler last term and runner-up to useful types in beginners' contests at Punchestown and Wexford; didn't jump well when very disappointing favourite in Galway handicap but, in retrospect, maybe he shouldn't have been allowed to run after being kicked at the start; readily forgiven that and good chance on previous efforts.

Form & Verdict

Progressive novice over hurdles last term when he won four times; beaten favourite (twice odds-on) all three starts over fences; his second at Limerick was franked when the winner won a Galway handicap off 130 but hard to put him forward after he burst at Kilbeggan last time; been given six weeks to get over that.

Fine efforts in defeat all four chase starts even though broke blood vessels two starts ago at Kilbeggan; better at Killarney last time even though he jumped to the right at times; will be unhelpful if he does that again today but is capable of going close.

Won his fourth race over hurdles when scoring at Cheltenham on comeback in April; has acquitted himself well in two beginners' chases since, at Down Royal (2m4f) and Limerick (2m7f); looks likely to stay this trip and looks his powerful yard's first-string.

Form & Verdict

Certainly one of the lesser lights in his powerful stable although may improve a little on last month's chasing debut fifth at Kilbeggan having been off for a year beforehand; unlikely to contend unless mishaps befall others.

Anything trained by JJ Murphy has to be given a second look at Killarney but hard to fancy this dual-winning pointer who has shown little over hurdles or on chase debut at Tramore in June.
