Form & Verdict

Solid bumper form last season; second to the useful Slade Steel at Punchestown before beating a shorter-priced stablemate at Limerick, ran a fine race when a close-up sixth behind A Dream To Share at Cheltenham Festival (fourth of the stable's runners); disappointed at Aintree on final start, but looks the pick here on overall form; gets 6lb from the other bumper winner.

Good bumper horse, beating Blizzard Of Oz twice and finishing sixth at Cheltenham; jumped sketchily but brushed aside Backtonormal at Gowran and likely to improve for this.

Unplaced in a point less than a year ago but has made great strides in bumpers since, flooring a shorter-priced stablemate at Limerick before running a cracker when a close sixth at the Cheltenham Festival (soft; 50-1); that's the best form on offer here and he commands major respect.

Showed ability on sole point start when runner-up to subsequent bumper winner Wingmen; third behind a pair of more experienced rivals (both maiden hurdle winners this season) on bumper debut at Cork last March; had the useful Lucid Dreams (now winner of six races) behind when landing a bumper at Ballinrobe last April; likely to be well primed for this.
