In a good vein of form at present and likely to give his running again today.
Stable among the winners and looked on the way back to form when good third last week.
Running okay over hurdles in the winter, but this step up in trip needs to make a major difference.
Stable in good form, but needs to but a couple of laboured efforts behind him.
Improved form to win on the Flat at Leopardstown last month and hood evidently expected to work just as well over hurdles. We were knocked over as soon as we went up at 12s last night.
Very impressive at Yarmouth three runs ago and possible excuses for subsequent performances. Richard Hughes booking offers encouragement.

Traders Tip - 7.45 Galway - Timiyan
Dermot Weld’s success at Galway often leads to his runners being underpriced, but Timiyan looks a rare exception to that rule and is rated the most interesting of the Weld team this evening. He’s long since stood out as a potential Galway plot, being bred to be a good deal better than a 77-rated horse, and the visor goes on for his handicap debut now returned to a trip that’s more in keeping with his middle-distance pedigree. Closest market rival Annus Mirabalis’ running style will suit the track, but he didn’t look to have much in hand at Leopardstown last time out and looks opposable under a penalty.
