Form & Verdict
Point' winner was long odds-on to win a Punchestown bumper on debut but was disqualified for interference after passing the post in front; made no mistake at Galway since and the 3rd that day has shown smart hurdle form; carries a penalty but can go close.

Progressive sort who seemed to relish the step up in trip at Fairyhouse on New Year's Day and that form has been boosted by the runner-up winning since; won in better style than the winning margin suggested that day and there could be more to come from this point winner stepping up in trip; seemingly down the order on jockey bookings.

No joy in three Irish points but he's shown clear promise in bumpers including when second at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) last month; closely related to a 2m5f hurdles winner and he needs a close look on his switch to this sphere.
