Admirable sort won his eighth race and sixth over hurdles when taking a Ballinrobe conditions event last time over 2m2f; stays this trip too but faces a tough task giving weight away to some smart rivals; still go well.

Chased home Hiddenvalley Lake in a Grade 2 before a ninth in the Coral Cup and fair sixth in the Aintree Hurdle since; very well treated if he can build on that down in class but might find this trip on decent ground a bit sharp these days.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in 15 starts came in a Thurles maiden hurdle in 2023 but has run with credit in quality races since, notably the Coral Cup at Cheltenham and Stayers' Hurdle at Punchestown last twice; a repeat of those efforts will see him go close

Consistent enough in good company without being good enough; excellent run in first-time headgear combination (retained here) in the Coral Cup but much more needed.

J: Ricky Doyle

Chasing did not work out on first two starts this term and well beaten back over hurdles at Christmas, albeit on heavy going; wore these cheekpieces last April (career best) and on latest start, and the tongue-tie (worn on penultimate start) is back; opposable on nearly all evidence, except his 80-1 third in a Grade 1 novice at Punchestown (3m, yielding) last April.

Form & Verdict

Dual-purpose mare is a smart hurdler, winning a Fairyhouse handicap on soft/heavy before running a fine race to be beaten 11l in the Stayers' Hurdle at Punchestown, 4l ahead of Franciscan Rock; meets him on the same terms today and holds a major chance at these weights.

J: Daniel King

T: Denis Gerard Hogan

Better-known as a seven-time hurdles winner; over three years since the second of his two wins over fences; shaped quite well at Wexford on his first run after a winter break but that was a veterans' chase (closely matched with Cavalry Master) and this is more demanding.
