Form & Verdict

Failed to build on initial promise as a chaser two seasons ago; had a spell over hurdles before prospering when sent back over fences at Tramore last spring; impressed with his jumping at Galway and Killarney but that ability deserted him in a match at Listowel; obvious chance here on his best form; acts well on a sound surface but has won on soft-to-heavy.

Has always had the ability but his headstrong characteristics have been used to his advantage on his last three starts; has particularly impressed with his jumping and his ability to sustain a gallop at Galway and Killarney last twice; will be hard to peg back here.

Won in good style at Navan (2m4f, heavy) in December on second stable start but this 10yo has failed to reproduce that form on his four starts since (most recently at the Cheltenham Festival) and needs to raise his game.

Three wins apiece over hurdles and fences from 2m-2m7f on all types of ground; fine efforts in defeat in graded chase company the last twice and should run his race again; has a bit to find against his sole rival at these weights but could take advantage if that one doesn't run to his mark.
