Form & Verdict

Won his first four races as a juvenile hurdler in 2020, including a Grade 2 Cheltenham contest; career did not progress as expected; ran only twice in 2023; promising second on chase debut in a beginners' at Punchestown last month with Klarc Kent 2l away in third; another good run behind the Mullins-trained Aime Desjy at Gowran; can uphold form now.

Four-time hurdle winner is rated 128 in that sphere and has taken to chasing really well with fine runner-up efforts at Punchestown and Gowran (jumped left); should be closely involved.

Klarc Kent

10st 2lb

J: Sean O’Keeffe

T: W P Mullins

Bumper win in March 2022; has had only six races since and failed to win but he's been competitive sent chasing this season, beaten a neck on handicap debut at Fairyhouse (2m5f, heavy) three weeks ago; 2m7f performance the time before backs up the suggestion that serious stamina tests could suit.

Form & Verdict

Point winner; looked set to win 2m3f maiden hurdle at Limerick in December only to fall two out; made amends in good style over 2m4f at Fairyhouse; looked very much at home on heavy ground in Grade 2 contest over an extended 3m at Haydock, beating a 121-rated mare by 17 lengths; could be hard to beat.

J: Sean Flanagan

T: Gavin Cromwell

Very much on the improve; would have landed a Limerick maiden hurdle at Christmas but for falling, has put that to rights since by winning a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle and bossing a 3m Grade 2 novice at Haydock; big step back in trip here for his chase debut but effective over at least 2m3f and likely to be hard to beat.

Form & Verdict

Winner of three point-to-points; big-priced winner of modest Limerick maiden hurdle at Christmas; has made little impact in three chase runs, including when proving difficult to steer at Cork in January; up against it.
