12st 0lb

J: James Smith

T: Matthew J Smith

Flat winner in Britain with limited experience over hurdles; ran a fine race after almost a year off when a close third in a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle two weeks ago; more needed but unexposed over flights and would not be a shock if he was competitive.

Form & Verdict

Won valuable sales bumper at Fairyhouse in 2022 and has been progressive since returning over the last six months, winning a maiden hurdle at Naas in April and would have won a handicap hurdle without an unseat (made very bad error) at the final flight at Killarney last month; hard to beat with a clear round.

Beat useful stablemate Lecky Watson in a Fairyhouse bumper in 2022; good third in 2m Leopardstown maiden hurdle on his second start after a long absence; disappointed since at Fairyhouse and Down Royal (reportedly made a respiratory noise); much more like it when winning a Naas maiden; good chance he can go well off this opening mark

Form & Verdict

0-16 on the Flat and yet to win in five hurdle starts but has run some creditable races in this sphere; has races in her but they're likely to be in handicaps and she's been off 241 days.
