Veteran retains enthusiasm and was recording fourth hurdles win when making most and battling back well in 2m6f Tramore handicap on New Year's Day; limited experience of chasing, let down by jumping when last seen in this discipline in August.

Form & Verdict

In good form, having won Tramore beginners chase on New Year's Day and more recently off the mark hurdling in 2m Limerick novice handicap, each time making all; in between 2m6f trip too far at Thurles; seems sure to make a bold bid back chasing over a trip which suits.

Hunter chase winner over 3m at Cork last season and has been running well in handicap chases this season, including second over 2m3f at Thurles; 2m6f at same venue probably stretched him on latest and now takes a sharp drop in trip.
