Dual purpose sort was an unplaced favourite at Dundalk last time; had previously produced a good display for this rider when second in an 18-runner handicap hurdle at Leopardstown.

Dual purpose sort ran a fine race over 1m4f here in November; good hurdle run lately at Leopardstown; front-runner should make a bold bid.

Form & Verdict

Useful dual bumper winner and a novice winner over hurdles; has not shown much since a fair hurdles run at Naas in February; form in beginners' chases not particularly strong; ran on the Flat last time; plenty of weight for his handicap debut.
