12:50 Fairyhouse Wed 14 November 2018
Best effort over hurdles when third in a heavy-ground maiden at Fairyhouse (2m4f) in January. Needed return, and made a fair start over fences when a keeping-on third at Wexford. May do better, especially granted a stiffer test.
Well beaten in a trio of maiden hurdles, and no reason to expect this son of Network to contend here, for all his pedigree suggests he'll make more impact over fences in time.
Stablemate of Cherokee Bill, and a better hurdler than that one, so would appear the yard's first string now sent chasing after a creditable fifth in handicap company at the weekend.
Better over fences than hurdles, but pretty well exposed in this sphere, and sets a modest standard. Surprise if a few don't progress past him here.
Didn't go on as expected after winning a 2m6f maiden hurdle at Down Royal last season, but still showed fairly useful form in defeat, and was an impressive winner of his only point-to-point start. Leading claims.
Soundly beaten on his sole completed start in this sphere, and makes very little appeal in this company.
Won a low-grade handicap hurdle at Downpatrick in July, but well held more recently, and looks out of her depth on chase debut.
