Form & Verdict

Landed a gamble in his first handicap hurdle at Galway 15 months ago; next run probably came too soon; reappeared after a year off with a pleasing handicap hurdle run at Cork in November; recovered from a mistake at the last to win at Naas on his handicap chase debut; cheekpieces retained, looks capable of following up off 9lb higher.
