8 yo Gelding

OR: 106

Form & Verdict

Bumper and chase winner; also a fair maiden on the Flat (rated 76); twice a beaten favourite last November/December when trying to exploit a mark 22lb below his chase rating in handicap hurdles at Thurles and Cork; looks significant that he is given another opportunity after a break.

Let down by his jumping when favourite for a handicap hurdle at Thurles last time; useful Flat/chase form before that; should be thereabouts of jumping better.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten in fourth in a Dundalk handicap last time; respectable maiden hurdle form, notably when fourth in a 22-runner contest at Cork in January; beat today's rival The Banger Doyle (looked an unlucky loser) by 1/2l in a 1m6f maiden at Killarney last summer before no match for another Irish raider in the Amateur Riders' Derby at Epsom.

Form & Verdict

Ran respectably over 2m at Tramore in November; tailed off in a pair of 2m4f events; a drop back in trip did the trick when she won over 2m at Leopardstown on handicap debut; handled soft then but might not want conditions as testing as this.

Poor form in points; better in two runs in bumpers at this venue early last season; ground was good when she made a winning debut for Fergal O'Brien in a mares' maiden hurdle at Worcester last August; first run for this stable now
