Form & Verdict

Grade 2 runner-up over hurdles last term; made all on chase debut in a beginners' at Naas; that was a likeable effort but was too keen when 2l behind Spillane's Tower latest; shorter trip needs to help him settle better; 3lb better off with that rival this time but winner was decent value for the winning margin.

Form & Verdict

Stayed on really well over 2m at Punchestown to get the better of Firm Footings on his penultimate run and took his form to a new level when beating the re-opposing Blood Destiny in a Grade 3 back at that venue since; clearly on the up and heavy ground will help dropping back in trip; 3lb worse off at the weights but may confirm the form given that he was well on top at the line.

Form & Verdict

Promise over hurdles and progressed to win on chase debut in beginners' at Fairyhouse in January; should progress from that but certainly needs to if he's going to have a say at this level; handles the ground at least.
