Form & Verdict

Remains a maiden after 12 starts and it's possible this trip stretches him, but he's run some good races this season and was going well in front when falling four out over C&D (good to soft) last month; also effective on soft going; dropped 2lb today and might not be far away for in-form yard.

Perhaps flattered to win quite so convincingly over fences here two runs back (2m4f, soft) and was then a remote third again here after going up 9lb; 5lb lower for this return to hurdling and Gearoid Harney takes off a further 7lb, so has a chance at the weights.
