Form & Verdict

Runner-up in an Irish point in February; well backed when making a winning rules debut at Wincanton last month (1m7f, soft), travelling strongly and overcoming a peck on landing at the last hurdle to get up close home; the form was boosted by the runner-up's subsequent win and the greater emphasis on stamina here should suit; leading claims.

Made promising Irish point debut just under a year ago and is 3-3 under rules this season (all on soft ground), including a 2m course win in November and last month's handicap debut at Wincanton (1m7f); promises to be very well suited by today's longer trip and commands respect.

Only three finished in the point in which he was second in March (3m, soft) and the winner, who has since shown good ability in bumpers, won easily; sold for £40,000 in April; had wind op prior to rules debut; betting instructive on stable debut.
