Form & Verdict
Had plenty to spare when beating very experienced mare Banntown Girl at Ballinrobe in April; backed that up with a game display to win a 25-runner handicap hurdle at the Punchestown festival; more progress is needed in order to make a mark in this grade, but she is only five so there is every chance of sustained improvement.

Won twice over hurdles towards the end of last season, including a Punchestown festival handicap off 7lb lower than this; interesting back in handicap company after two runs in conditions races; wear cheekpieces for the first time; each-way proposition.

Recruit from Flat in France; took a couple of runs to find his feet over hurdles but followed up a Naas maiden win with a convincing success in a Grade B handicap at the Punchestown festival; not beaten far in seventh behind stablemate Zarak The Brave in the Galway Hurdle.
