Career best when landing a second hurdle success on his penultimate run but couldn't build on that from 8lb higher at Punchestown last time; needs another career best to figure.

Point winner at Ballindenisk in December after two failures to complete; two good runs in mares' maiden hurdles; rider reported she hung left throughout when runner-up in a 2m event at Limerick; looked more amenable when 8l second in testing conditions over 2m3f at Clonmel; might prefer further but respected.

No joy in first 12 starts but he's come good with decisive wins on slow ground over hurdles here (2m4f/3m) the last twice; now returns to chasing but things have really clicked in those last two runs and he's a big player if he can transfer his progress back to this sphere.

Promise in bumpers and took his form to a new level to win a handicap hurdle at Limerick in January; unseated when beaten at Punchestown since; still early days and handles testing ground fine.

Improver of late since switched to handicaps, finishing clear second over 2m5f at Fairyhouse before landing 3m Punchestown contest on soft-to-heavy, showing good attitude to hold off a strong favourite (Bestaline a remote third); 8lb higher but bold follow-up bid anticipated.

Verdict

Competitive contest. Progressive performers like Lep Around and Pipers Boreen can go well. Jeriko De Baume is likely to play a hand too, but the one to beat is likely to be C&D winner SARAH BEARA(nap) if she can run up to her good third in a Limerick Grade 3 last time. [Justin O’Hanlon]
