Maiden form not much to write home about; could be more of a factor now dipping his toes into handicap grade, but on the face of it, looks up against it.

Form & Verdict
Gradually progressive in recent weeks and gained just rewards when coming up trumps in a combination of today's headgear at Kilbeggan 8 days ago; still raced a little free that day so potential for more here under his 4lb penalty if he settles a little better; on form in any case and looks one of the more likely ones.

Jumping fell apart in a chase at Roscommon on return from a long layoff (756-days); in good form prior to that over hurdles, but clock is ticking and it won't be easy here under top weight to make up for lost time; first-time tongue-tie.
