Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the third attempt in bumpers when making all at Listowel (2m4f, yielding to soft) in September on final run for Patrick O'Rourke; makes hurdle/stable debut in a modest race and his pedigree provides optimism he'll stay the trip; strong claims.

Made all in a Listowel bumper (2m4f, yielding to soft) on final Irish outing in September; made a winning debut for this yard at Musselburgh (3m, soft) but it wasn't impressive and he's likely to be exposed at this loftier level.

Won Irish mares' maiden point (3m, soft to heavy) in April on her third start and has posted fair efforts in both bumpers (2m, heavy/soft); those slowly run races are unlikely to have played to her strengths and this attractively bred mare is open to improvement now up in trip on hurdle debut.
