Form & Verdict

Capable at 2m4f but he does stay well as he showed in winning the 3m Connacht National at Roscommon in June; couldn't confirm those placings with the second at Kilbeggan (3m1f) but lost nothing in defeat; has got himself high in the weights, up another 5lb for last time.

Is 6-20 over fences; gained his most significant win in a 2m6f Listed handicap chase at this venue last August, a 10l success that brought an 11lb rise in the ratings; down the field in the Kerry National; warmed up for this with a hurdles run last month; four wins from five visits to this track, worth considering despite a big burden.

He was running well in third (just behind runner-up Railway Hurricane) when slipping and almost falling at the final fence over C&D last month (good; pulled up); also effective on soft ground; might not be far away.

Won four-runner beginners' chase at Clonmel (2m4f, good) on chasing debut in June and has remained in good form since, perhaps most notably when second in Listed handicap at Killarney (2m5f, yielding to soft) in August; should give another good account here but others appeal more.

Couldn't win a hurdle but fair start over fences this summer; after winning at Clonmel, had Sphagnum well behind when second in Tipperary novice and likewise The Little Yank was well in arrears when he was second in 2m5f Killarney handicap; handled yielding/soft last time, trainer says he ideally wants it good.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in last season's Troytown (3m, soft) off 3lb lower when last partnered by Conor Smithers; faced some tough tasks in the meantime and it was always asking a lot of him to dominate (as he likes) in the Galway Plate last time; expect a positive ride back at this trip and could take some reeling in.
