Form & Verdict

Posted a smart RPR of 143 when winning a Punchestown handicap in the first-time hood in April and returned with a respectable seventh in the Galway Hurdle; boasts the highest rating of these but he was a disappointing favourite at Listowel only 11 days ago when third in small-field novice (ran flat).

Last year's winner (off 130) hasn't won again since, often facing stiff tasks; seasonal-best however 10 days ago when second in Scottish Champion Hurdle (handicap) at Ayr, having to be switched when coming late; better ground no problem; Townend prefers Daddy Long Legs.
