Form & Verdict

Improved in first-time cheekpieces to land a bumper on easy ground at Roscommon in June; looked in need of further when third in a 2m1f maiden hurdle at Ballinrobe; failed to take advantage of what looked a good opportunity at Sligo last time; some allowance should be made for interference suffered then.

Bumper and maiden hurdle winner for Gordon Elliott; runner-up at Hereford (2m3f, good) on second run for current yard, but she's not easy to predict and was tailed off at Wincanton on her return last month; has something to prove again after that and she's untried beyond 2m5f.

Form & Verdict

Has shown improvement in finishing second at Kilbeggan on his two most recent starts; holds a leading chance if jumping more fluently; has tended to be untidy, mistakes at the last two flights proved costly when he was pegged back last time; the addition of a hood may help.
