2-2 since fitted with cheekpieces last month, the wins gained from the front at Downpatrick (2m5f, soft) and Gowran Park (3m, heavy; handicap debut); faces a tougher assignment but should be fine on the forecast quicker ground and is heading in the right direction.

Form & Verdict

Cork maiden winner back in April (2m) had been running well on the flat before unseating at the last when holding place claims in Ballinrobe handicap hurdle last month; not sure if this greater stamina test if what he wants although gets 1m6f on the Flat.

Second in only completed point-to-point for Colin McBratney; behind two decent types when third in Galway festival bumper before winning hurdles debut in 2m7f Ballinrobe maiden last month, plenty keen but seeing it out well to win with plenty in hand; still unexposed; hood now fitted and more likely if settling better.

Made most to win on hurdles debut at Ballinrobe (2m7f) and didn't have enough use made of him when third to subsequent handicap winner at Downpatrick; hood tried there left off and stepping back up in trip should suit.
