Winning spree came to an end at Cheltenham but it was still a very respectable effort to finish a 12l sixth to City Island in the Ballymore. Penalty to carry here but handles all ground and is a course winner. Chances again in an open little race.
Threw in a bad one at Kelso last time (when well fancied) but previous runs behind the likes of Champ and Al Dancer are top class. Worth forgiving the Kelso effort and if so, has leading chances here, despite the penalty.
Talked up as Festival material at the beginning of the year but he's yet to really catch fire and he's ground to make up on Galvin on their Ballymore running. Bit to prove now, and drop back in trip not guaranteed to suit.
Useful on the Flat and has transferred that ability over hurdles, highly tried last couple of starts but not disgraced by any means and this looks a suitable test (both wins in small fields). Gets a bit of weight and not ruled out.
Defeat of the useful Posh Trish at Newbury last November brings her right into this, bit below par at Cheltenham when well beaten in the Mares novice hurdle but this is easier. Needs a bit more but that's not impossible.
