Form & Verdict

The form of February's Irish point win could have worked out better (no subsequent winners behind) but he clearly made a good impression as he was sold for £290,000 later that month; this half-brother to useful hurdler/chase Real Milan is likely to attract plenty of interest on stable debut.

3m point winner who scored on hurdle debut at Ffos Las (2m6f, good to soft) in October and followed up at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) last month, staying on well for narrow verdict from Alcedo; this unbeaten 6yo could prove well suited to today's test of stamina and he's in calculations.

Easy winner of an Irish point and an Exeter bumper on his first two starts; only third (behind a stable companion) when odds-on at Sandown in February but remains a fascinating prospect for hurdling and has proved his ability to act in testing ground; probably the one to beat.

Easy winner of an Irish point and Exeter bumper (heavy) on first two starts; however, turned over at 8-13 on his next three outings and made an underwhelming handicap debut when second favourite at Ascot (2m7f) on latest start, so others are now preferred for win purposes.

Sets the hurdling standard based on his Taunton second when last seen in March; that is no more than moderate form so could struggle to cope with some promising types; still has place prospects.
