Form & Verdict

Won 2m4f maiden hurdle at Cork last March; tailed off on chase debut at Galway; making some headway when falling two out at Punchestown; remote third at Fairyhouse; looked like he might improve for this step up in trip when fourth over 2m1f on handicap debut at the same venue; possibly the pick of four McManus runners.

J: Charlie O’Dwyer

Won 2m4f maiden hurdle at Cork last March; ordinary form in conditions chases before fair fourth over 2m1f on handicap debut at Fairyhouse; well suited by the step up to 2m4f when winning readily of a light weight at Naas; a lot more on his plate now but further progress is feasible over this trip; Charlie O'Dwyer takes off a useful 5lb.

Grade 3 novice hurdle winner over 3m at Clonmel two seasons ago; failed to convince as a novice chaser last season, but made a pleasing handicap/seasonal debut when 9l second over an extended 2m4f at Navan; sights lowered now after remote seventh in the Thyestes for which he was well fancied.
