Form & Verdict

128-rated hurdler following handicap wins at Down Royal and Fairyhouse in March; 22lb lower over fences with a mark based on three runs last summer; hurdle wins came on soft and heavy but she won a point on good ground and is potentially very well treated if she handles it now.

Form & Verdict

Enjoyed a productive 2021/22 campaign, mixing between hurdling and chasing and showing notable consistency; has been out of form as a hurdler/chaser for a considerable time, but perhaps some signs of a revival over hurdles at Killarney last time.

Form & Verdict

Struggled in hunter chases last spring after winning a point-to-point; second on his only point start in the season just ended; won the charity race at the Punchestown, so should be in good shape for this, his first handicap chase run since 2021.

Formerly a useful chaser; won a Belharbour point' before being a well-held second at Lisronagh; had every chance in a Cork hunter chase when falling two out; a repeat of his best form would see him go close.

Form & Verdict

Takes a big drop in trip now having recorded his first chase win over a trip close to 4m at Punchestown; had been running well before that over a range of distances; his best hurdles form confirms he is trip-versatile.

Two hurdle wins in 2022; beaten narrowly by The Gradual Slope in a rated hurdle at Down Royal in January 2023; not yet at the same level chasing after four attempts, tame finishing effort at Limerick latest; improvement needed.

Won this race last year (when it was run over slightly shorter) on good-to-yielding; had two runs over hurdles after a winter break; found his form again when switched to chasing at Killarney, winning easily after going clear from three out; 9lb higher but chance has to be taken seriously with the stable in form

Has a poor strike rate over hurdles (1-27) but has got to grips with chasing now; backed up his second to a Willie Mullins-trained rival in a beginners' event at Tramore with a wide-margin handicap win at Limerick ten days ago; had plenty in reserve and can remain competitive off 8lb higher.
