Form & Verdict

Placed in two of his three starts in bumpers the season before last, but has failed to build on the promise of his debut second at Naas; ran in strong maiden hurdles last year; potentially interesting on first run since seventh in a 28-runner contest at Leopardstown's Christmas fixture.

Form & Verdict

Versatile good-ground performer has won seven races for yard including two on the Flat and a hurdle last year, and first two chase starts in 2022; well below his best in two handicap hurdle runs in May; much the same story at Tipperary on Thursday.

Ran twice in 2023; appreciated better ground when winning a 2m3f Kilbeggan maiden hurdle in May on first run after a winter break; his opening mark looks fair enough.

Form & Verdict

Down the field in 1m6f handicap at Fairyhouse last time; much better judged on consistent handicap hurdle form that culminated in a Ballinrobe win in May; two wins and three places from his last six runs over hurdles; 8lb higher than for his most recent win.

Form & Verdict

Won a 2m3f handicap chase early last season for Ronan McNally; struggled in three chase runs after switching to a new yard; made first appearance for Katy Brown in a 2m6f heavy-ground handicap hurdle at Navan in February; ran well in first-time tongue-tie, chasing home the Charles Byrnes-trained Aodhan May, rated 82 then and now 126 after three more wins.

Won a Tramore maiden hurdle a year ago but failed to go forward from that; has taken two falls over fences lately and may need confidence restored.

Form & Verdict

Both hurdle wins have come over 2m4f at this track, on soft ground in October 2022 and good last summer; better over further and hard to fancy on the form of two 2024 runs.
