Stayed on well to win 2m2f good-ground Kilbeggan bumper on debut for champion trainer, the yard's first runner in these famous silks. Makes jumping bow having relocated to Team Elliott and, up in trip, should have plenty to offer.
Cork bumper winner in July, so far has proved disappointing in four starts in maiden hurdles, having been strong in the betting. Tackles longer trip and retains respect, given connections.
Changed hands for €75,000 last year after being placed in a point-to-point last year, finished fifth of 12 (beaten 40L) in 2m4f maiden hurdle at Punchestown in December (won by Getabird), off since. Betting check needed.
Minor promise shown so far, beaten around 15L over a furlong shorter here recently in maiden hurdle on return from 168-day break. Has to improve to warrant place claims.
