Best effort so far came when finishing runner-up in a soft ground bumper here in August. Liable to find a couple stronger.
Debutant is a brother to an ordinary winner over hurdles and half-brother to a dual winner for Willie Mullins. Beaten 66L on debut when last seen in October.
Signs of a return to the form of his Leopardstown bumper in December when finishing 6¼L behind City Island in a Punchestown contest in May. Looks a progressive type and shortlisted here.
Poor form in three point-to-point starts before a 20L defeat in a Kilbeggan bumper last month. First time tongue-tie unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed here.
Last of 13 beaten 90L when sent off at 66/1 on bumper debut when last seen in December. Vast improvement needed to figure here.
Gelding by Ask out of a Exit To Nowhere mare. Dam un-raced half-sister to 2m4f hurdle winner Minella Special. Watching brief on debut.
Champs Elysees gelding cost 55,000gns as a yearling. Half-sister to Arc winner Marienbard. Beaten over 3f out on debut at Ballinrobe in May and best avoided here.
Gold Well gelding out of a Moonax mare. Cost €34,000 as a three-year-old. Half-brother to stout national hunt types Holywell and Johns Spirit. Worth a market check for leading trainer/jockey in this field.
Gelding by Trans Island out of a Fair Mix mare notable progeny include John O'Shea's multiple hurdle winner Kanpai in 2006. Improved on last run when finishing second of 10 in a Kilbeggan bumper last month. Each way claims.
Gelding by Mahler out of a Overbury mare. Cost €34,000 as a foal. Dam un-raced half sister to Racing Demon. Tongue-tie on debut a concern.
