Form & Verdict

Ballinrobe comeback win in May couldn't have worked out much better but somewhat disappointing (although not disgraced) in two Galway runs since, keeping on in 2m6f handicap and again over inadequate 2m; gives impression he still has more to offer off this mark and trip/ground ideal.

December's hurdle win saw him 5-4 favourite when returned to chasing (first time since 2022) off a lower mark for Grand National Trial at Punchestown (3m3f, heavy) in February and he came 16l second of 15; needs better than that but took a backward step when 26l sixth under Kieran Callaghan in the Irish National itself (3m5f, heavy) 19 days ago; 5lb out of the handicap.
