11-race maiden; some promise for Jim Bolger but has struggled so for this yard, most recently on AW; hard to fancy.

Fair form for Jim Bolger but not progressive; poor efforts for current yard last summer and can only be watched here on AW debut.

Dual-purpose sort made winning C&D return after a year's absence in April off 63; dropped out dramatically over hurdles at Punchestown festival nine days later however; short break since and no surprise if he bounced back.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdles winner last summer comes here on the back of a career-best second at the Punchestown festival (in first-time tongue tie which is now left off); 0-7 on the Flat but couple of efforts last year would give him a squeak here and clearly in good heart.

Sole win in 23 starts came at Sligo over this trip and went closest over same C&D early this month, just outbattled when clear of remainder; left with far too much to do at Navan on Saturday when finishing better than any; visor worn latest now left off.

Runner-up three times over hurdles and some fair Flat efforts, including on recent comeback over C&D; entitled to come on for that (missed an engagement at Navan last Saturday due to lameness).

C&D winner over a year ago off 53 then won over hurdles; recent hurdles form a bit disappointing but yard in such good form on the Flat of late can't be ruled out.

Verdict

Glyde Ranger was outbattled by WAR THUNDER at Sligo and it could be a similar scenario here, the former having run since at Navan on Saturday when left with too much to do. C&D winner Rumi and in-form hurdler Killeemore Lad are others to consider. [Alan Hewison]
