Seemed to give good account when second of three over C&D (good) last June, and got off the mark over fences with quite comfortable win at Fairyhouse (3m, soft to heavy) in November; not seen since a disappointing hurdle run in December but still considered.

Won a Tramore maiden hurdle (2m5f, good) for Willie Mullins in July 2022; career-best run last month when landing a Fairyhouse handicap chase for present yard (3m, soft to heavy; won by 9l); 10lb higher mark; interesting Irish raider.

Form & Verdict

Represents a strong trainer/rider combination but his modest strike rate is a concern (1-12 hurdles, 1-17 chasing); best form this year when second on goodish ground at Killarney in May and Kilbeggan in June; soundly beaten in fifth at the Listowel festival; jumping let him down badly at Chepstow last month.

Form & Verdict

Is 0-26, placed seven times; form has lacked consistency but she has often looked capable of picking up a little handicap over fences, though perhaps more likely on better ground than this; should strip fitter as a result of recent hurdles run; Clonmel second in June gives her a live chance.

Winner of four of her six point-to-point starts for the champion handler; placed in a 3m handicap hurdle at this venue early last month before winning a Tramore beginners' chase on her second attempt over racecourse fences; that was over an extended 2m5f and she was unsuited by the drop in trip at Clonmel a fortnight later; 3m will suit.
