Form & Verdict

Point winner; finished runner-up when splitting two nice prospects on rules debut in a bumper at Navan in February (first and third won since); not quite as good when third in a bumper back at that venue in March and well below form when tailed off over this trip on hurdle debut; however, may do better this season and could get back on track; off 175 days.

Point winner; runner-up on rules debut in a bumper before switching to this yard; has improved since, winning a Thurles bumper by a wide margin and proved that was no fluke when runner-up in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse in April (form working out); fell when evens at Kilbeggan when last seen but can resume progress this term and he handles testing ground; off 162 days.
