Form & Verdict

2021 Triumph Hurdle winner; ended juvenile campaign with a disappointing display at Punchestown; eclipsed by the Gordon Elliott-trained Teahupoo on all three outings the following season, though went close against him in a Grade 2 event at this venue; has the size to make a chaser and remains of significant interest despite a long layoff.

2021 Triumph Hurdle winner; back this season from a long absence and won two minor chases in Ireland; had excuses for his two defeats, with his venture over 3m too bad to be true and losing it at the start when only 11-2 for the Arkle; could easily have a career best lurking over fences and is another to consider.
