Form & Verdict

Consistent on decent ground last summer (including here) before a maiden win at the Listowel festival; returned to similar level of form on latest when staying-on third in Wexford rated contest in late May on soft; part of strong challenge from Cromwell yard and not one to rule out.

Consistent on decent ground last summer, three seconds before a maiden win at the Listowel festival; the ground was probably too testing on his return at Naas last month; the run is likely to have brought him on.

More highly-rated chaser just denied back hurdling in valuable Killarney handicap in May, not quite so good at Listowel when never-nearer fourth; remains of interest however.

Returned from chasing with decent fourth (to Lord Erskine) at Leopardstown in February; faded quite tamely in County Hurdle; dropped out quickly after two out in valuable Punchestown festival handicap, leaving him with questions to answer.

Progressive juvenile the season before last, winning a pair of Grade 2's; returned from 203-day absence with poor run at Fairyhouse over Easter, more encouraging run at Punchestown festival but only ordinary again at Listowel last time; others possibly better handicapped right now.
