Form & Verdict

Unbeaten under rules including odds-on hurdle wins at Galway and Listowel; didn't seem suited by going right-handed when beating pair of subsequent winners at the former venue so that is a slight concern; trip fine and ground should be too.

T: W P Mullins

Took three goes to win a point but he's 5-5 under rules, four of those over hurdles (2m4f-2m6f); lacks the wow factor having not been strikingly impressive in any of them, and has yet to run above Listed level, but he's developed the winning habit and might be the sort who does only enough; his jumping is good when seeing a stride but can be iffy when he doesn't; others appeal more.

Dual bumper winner; lots of experience in this sphere and on a hat-trick after 2m4f wins at Tipperary and Galway where he beat three Mullins-trained runners; winning form all on decent ground.

J: Keith Donoghue

T: Peter Fahey

Irish hurdler; failed to score last term but has shown improvement upped to 2m4f/2m5f this season, winning at Tipperary and Galway then respectable second (behind a Closutton odds-on shot) in Listed grade at Limerick; all wins on good or good to yielding but seems to handle softer; may still have more to offer at this sort of trip; big player despite 3lb penalty.

Unbeaten since joining Elliott, winning 2m1f bumper and pair of 2m hurdles; ground should be okay but has to prove stamina for this trip.

Form & Verdict

Beat a horse now rated 142 over hurdles in Navan bumper; form of 2l fourth against more experienced rivals over 2m4f here last Christmas reads well although that was slowly-run affair and might be flattered by it; yard going well and chance has to be taken seriously.

Beat a good horse to win a bumper; it hasn't really happened for him yet over hurdles and was well beaten second when odds-on in Limerick maiden lately; will be better for that run having been off five months and market will guide.

Beat the talented Found A Fifty (now a leading novice chaser) in a Navan bumper; hurdle runs have not matched that form, though twice set stiff tasks here, when creditable fourth in a conditions contest at 2022 Christmas fixture and on seasonal debut when friendless in the ring and never in the hunt in a four-runner event in October.
