Flat-bred gelding was 100-1 for decent Leopardstown maiden hurdle over Christmas and showed up well for a long way, only beaten 11l in the end; yard has been notably quiet for some time.

Dam a sister to Yorkhill; stuck to his task when not beaten far by two stablemates in Thurles bumper and, although winner a little disappointing at Fairyhouse on Monday, he was only two lengths behind the subsequent Champion Bumper fifth; big player with progress likely.

Runner-up in a point and first two bumpers, touched off by a head at Fairyhouse in early December; weakened tamely over 2m4f at Leopardstown later that month and back from a break here; yard had two winners but an awful lot of disappointing runners at Fairyhouse over the weekend.

Runner-up in a point-to-point and beaten at odds-on in a Sligo bumper in October; should improve for that but he will need to; one of two for the stable here.

Went close in a heavy ground Limerick bumper on his penultimate start but only remote fourth since and both pedigree and the way he's shaped suggest he may need further.

Malinas gelding; half-brother to winners Favour And Fortune (useful bumper/2m hurdle), Dreal Deal (1m2f-2m Flat, RPR 93; useful 2m-2m6f hurdle) and Time Marches On (2m1f chase); hood for debut probably not a good sign.

Verdict

This can go the way of BALLYGUNNER CASTLE whose form received a boost at the Cheltenham Festival and he could be hard to beat for a yard that are enjoying a particularly good season in bumpers. Olympy De Cerisy could be the main danger if improving for headgear. [Mark Nunan]
