- Fairyhouse Winter Festival November 30th & December 1st Rated Novice Chase
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Built on promise of earlier chases when winning for the first time over 2m2f in a Galway beginners contest on soft ground in September before finishing second of seven beaten 21L over 2m6½f at the same venue last month. Likely to be in the mix.
Ran well in defeat when last seen in April over 3m in a Wexford handicap hurdle. Winner on soft to heavy ground at the same venue over 2m in March and not to be taken lightly on chasing debut.
Without success in the point-to-point ranks before lackluster efforts over hurdles and on chasing debut at Clonmel when last seen in June. Looks up against it on return to action.
Useful 122-rated handicap hurdler but was well beaten and never a factor on chasing debut behind Battleoverdoyen at Galway late last month on soft ground. Down in trip and not easily dismissed.
Not fluent when weakening on sole start over the larger obstacles in a Uttoxeter beginners contest over 2m4f in May 2018 when in the care of trainer Harry Fry. Well held in three starts over hurdles for current connections and faces a tough task.
useful sort over hurdles hit the frame in four of his last five starts since February. Worthy of a market check on chasing debut.
Not seen since February 2018 and yet to hit the frame in six starts over fences. Well worth a second look on return to action for patient and respected connections.
112-rated handicap hurdler, well held and never getting to the winner on his first couple of starts over the larger obstacles last month.
