16:00 Downpatrick Fri 11 October 2019
Highly tried and failed to complete on first two starts for current connections, but much-improved effort when runner-up in Cork (3m, heavy) handicap in March. May find this trip on quicker ground a little sharp, but not taken lightly.
Sole hurdles win came on 2016 debut and has failed to build on early promise over fences. Disappointing of late, and reverts to hurdles after a poor effort in cheekpieces/tongue tie at Galway Festival.
Winner on Irish and stable debut for leading connections, landing a Tramore maiden hurdle, and not ideally placed when second of 6 to Turnpike Trip in a 2m novice at Listowel last time. Should get back to winning ways here.
