Form & Verdict

Won a handicap chase over C&D off 88 just over a year ago; not as effective over hurdles this season; form has included 21l fourth to today's rival Folly Master (gave 13lb) at Punchestown; unplaced favourite for race in which He Fitz In was fourth a fortnight ago.

Form & Verdict

Point winner showed significant improvement for step up in trip (well-backed) to score on second handicap hurdle attempt over 2m7f at Punchestown in January; 16lb rise for that sent him chasing, and he was equal to the task in a 2m5f beginners event at Thurles; test of stamina will suit.

Form & Verdict

Third behind Its On The Line (now a top hunter chaser) at Cork two seasons ago on his only start over racecourse fences; never better than fourth in eights starts over hurdles last season; has joined Philip Rothwell and could go well if off this mark if fit and ready.
