Form & Verdict

Irish point winner (3m yielding to soft; three finished) who won a Sedgefield bumper in January (2m1f, soft; second won next time) and was then a creditable second to a subsequent winner in a maiden hurdle at Catterick 53 days ago (1m7f, heavy); should improve; a contender.

Bought for £1,000 after finishing runner-up to a decent prospect in an Irish point in April 2021 (3m, good; third has since won over hurdles); quite interesting on stable/hurdles debut despite long absence.
