Form & Verdict

Half-brother to useful jumper Git Maker; won second point easily (soft) and it was a similar story on bumper debut at Chepstow (heavy); there's substance to that form and wouldn't put it past him defying the penalty.

J: Gearoid Harney

Half-brother to useful jumper Git Maker; safely held on Irish point debut in April but displayed significant improvement to win easily on soft ground in October; new stable has very good bumper strike-rate (20%); needs to be taken very seriously.

Only 2l away in a 3m Irish point on yielding ground last May; the winner is unraced for Nicky Henderson but the second, now with Warren Greatrex, was tailed off on his hurdling debut (albeit on heavy); hooded for rules debut and probably best watched.
