Form & Verdict

Certainly on the up and only narrowly denied a hat-trick when beaten a neck in a Grade 3 novice hurdle at Navan in November; jumped to his right that day and that won't help at this venue but he has more upside than most so can't be ruled out, despite needing a career best.

Form & Verdict

Below form when fifth in a Grade 2 at Navan three weeks ago; has a big chance on ratings but he's more of a stayer and this is the shortest trip he's ever tried; cheekpieces need to have a positive effect.

Not the force he once was; was unable to score on favourable terms in a Leopardstown conditions event last time; cheekpieces are retained here and down another 3lb; still a dangerous opponent here with 7lb taken off his back.

Form & Verdict

Set some tough assignments this term and he ran with credit when finishing sixth here at the Dublin Racing Festival; would need to find a fair amount of improvement for a longer trip here to play a part in this and he has to give weight to all of his rivals.

Form & Verdict

Bolted up in three-runner contest at Clonmel when last seen and he's a fairly consistent sort at this level; markedly back down in trip but has run some good races over this sort of trip in the last 12 months and heavy ground will help bring his stamina into play; fine on the ground and can go well.
