Off the mark at just the third time of asking when landing a 23-runner maiden hurdle at the Fairyhouse Easter festival last month. before a decent run in defeat in a Kilbeggan novice hurdle last month. First-time blinkers to assist.
Has carried the good form of his maiden win at Limerick in April in to a couple of creditable handicap efforts at Punchestown and Ballinrobe recently. Likely to improve again for respected connections.
Won on his second hurdle appearance landing a Killarney maiden over 2m1f last month. Recent efforts suggest plenty of improvement and is approached with a great deal of respect.
Comes here in top form form over hurdles winning a 2m3f handicap before landing a novice contest over 2m4f at Sligo in April. Progressing rapidly from race-to-race and able to muster another bold bid here.
Looked a laboured run on stable and hurdling debut when last seen in December in a Leopardstown maiden over 2m4f. Makes little appeal in this company.
Provided a shock at Kilbeggan earlier this month landing a 2m2½f maiden hurdle at odds of 50/1. Time will tell whether the win in the 16-runner contest was a fluke.
Subtle Power mare, not doing much wrong at the moment, following up her win at Wexford by running well in defeat in a Cork novice hurdle last month. One of the more intriguing contenders.
