Form & Verdict

Bumper winner a year ago has started odds-on for all three hurdle outings, notably making all in C&D maiden and most recently when third to stablemate Fun Fun Fun in Grade 3 novice at Naas three weeks ago in first-time hood; headstrong and novicey in jumping to-date, should be capable of more if getting those issues sorted.

Late developing 8yo has shown progressive form in three bumpers since Christmas, latter two at this venue when only just touched off by subsequent Cheltenham Festival Champion Bumper runner-up Romeo Coolio and then handled testing ground well when just holding on (pair clear) last month; half-brother to useful hurdler/chaser The Caddy Rose set stiff enough task on hurdles debut here.

Form & Verdict

Two wins in France in middle-distance handicaps in the spring of 2022; off for 535 days until winning start for current connections in 2m Naas maiden hurdle last month, keen enough but quickening after untidy leap at the last to win snugly (second has won since); looks a smart prospect and could well be up to the task.

Half-brother to seven Flat winners, including several Listed scorers; two wins (from nine starts) in France were gained in middle-distance handicaps in the spring of 2022; absent since down the field in a 1m3f handicap at Longchamp later that year; has to be taken seriously.
