Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who has been placed on all three hurdling starts, most recently when third on handicap debut at Newbury (2m3f, good to soft) last month; may not be ideally suited by today's drop back in trip but appears to have been found a very good opportunity in this modest maiden.
