Form & Verdict

Bumper winner has by far the best hurdles form of these; Galway maiden third has worked out a treat; didn't get home over 2m7f in decent contest at Killarney but that was still a creditable run and this trip/ground will be fine.

Sixth in big fields at Leopardstown (3m, soft) and Cheltenham (2m5f, soft) on his last two outings, deserving extra credit considering late mistakes in the Coral Cup on latest; today's step back up in distance should suit and he's one to take seriously off an unchanged mark.
