Jumps: sturdy gelding: winning hurdler: useful handicap chaser: won at Punchestown in 2017/18, when also 1½ lengths promoted fourth of 30 to General Principle in Irish Grand National Chase at Fairyhouse (staying on when badly hampered last): has lacked for enthusiasm this season, well below form in 40-runner Grand National at Aintree last time: should stay 4m: acts on heavy going: wears headgear/tongue tie.

back under less testing conditions, was never involved 3 weeks on from a slog in the Midlands version, lacking the enthusiasm if not stamina to thrive in this scenario.

likely remains in form for all another marathon handicap eluded him, finishing with far more purpose than most, though that probably told the tale of a loss of interest more than anything, perhaps caused by a couple of errors; mid-division, lost ground fourteenth, clouted next, pushed along after eighteenth, blundered again 5 out, labouring 3 out, well off pace still next (fully 30 lengths behind front pair), finished well all too late.
2 Feb 19 San C1 Hcap 4/16 11.5 Hurdle 130 23.5f Soft (b+t) Richard Johnson 7/18 8.6 -/5 3rO 99.3 146 123+ 142+
occupied the same position as in this last season but it proved harder work, the test proving inadequate faced with conditions that weren't so demanding as 12 months earlier; mid-field, lost ground after 4 out, badly outpaced end of back straight, labouring still 2 out, ran on late to snatch fourth.
27 Dec 18 Chp C1 Hcap 8/20 31 Chase 145 29.5f Soft (s+t) Mr J. J. Codd 7/18 9.96 -/8 5 101.2 144 124+ 143+
had some very strong staying chase form to his name last season and looked to have been teed up for this with a pipe-opener over hurdles, but was ridden much more patiently than usual and couldn't get remotely involved; raced well off pace, behind still end of back straight, merely passed beaten horses.
24 Nov 18 Hay C1 Hcap 4/7 22 Hurdle 132 24.3f Good (s+t) Richard Johnson 11/112 15 -/7.8 2l 108.0 113 113 132
should strip fitter for the run after 7 months off and needs the emphasis more on stamina; tracked pace, off the bridle before most, lost place seventh, plodded on.

26 Apr 18 Pun Hcap 15/25 30 Hurdle 128 24f Gd/Sft (s+t) J. W. Kennedy 8/19 12.58 -/9.2 2 99.1 126 108 127
back over hurdles, is best not judged on this run, possibly finding it coming too soon after his Irish National exertions (endured a harder race than most of those that finished ahead of him); chased leaders, not fluent fourth, driven from 4 out, shuffled back between 3 out and 2 out, soon beaten.
2 Apr 18 Fry Hcap 4/30 1.45 Chase 142 29f Heavy (s+t) Robbie Power 11/112 14.4 -/1.51 3R 100.1 156 143+ 162+
proved better than ever and probably should have won after 7 weeks off, things not going right from an early stage, yet he was still coming with a strong challenge when stopped in his tracks at the final fence, interference that cost him more ground than the distance beaten, the stewards seeing fit to promote him to fourth in the aftermath; in touch, lost place when badly hampered seventh, hit sixteenth, not fluent eighteenth, ridden from 4 out, still only sixth jumping 2 out, keeping on when badly hampered last, stayed on strongly again run-in, nearest at the finish; he will remain of interest in valuable staying handicaps in the short-term.

11 Feb 18 Pun Hcap 1/19 1.50 Chase 133 28.7f Heavy (s+t) J. W. Kennedy 5/16f 5.96 21/- 2kr 113.3 149 141+ 160+
who landed this race (for Conor O'Dwyer) in 2014, was back over fences for the first time for this yard after a productive spell hurdling and resumed winning ways; never far away, loomed up 2 out, led entering straight, headed soon after last, rallied well to regain lead final 100 yds; not the most straightforward but connections will presumably have further valuable long-distance handicaps in mind for him in the coming months, including the Irish Grand National itself.
3 Feb 18 San C1 Hcap 4/17 5.00 Hurdle 132 23.5f Heavy (s+t) Barry Geraghty 14/115 19.47 -/5.5 3 105.9 137 120+ 139+
ran creditably in a tougher race after 9 weeks off; mid-division, mistake eighth, shaken up early in straight, not quicken 2 out, kept on run-in; he's entered in the Grand National trial at Punchestown and it will be interested to see how much he will revive at long distances over fences for his new yard, certainly one to note.

ran creditably despite appearing unsuited by the drop in trip and has made an encouraging start for his new yard; chased leaders, ridden approaching straight, kept on.
16 Nov 17 Clo Hcap 1/14 0.10 Hurdle 123 24f Heavy (t) J. W. Kennedy 10/111 14.03 200/- 3r 107.3 125+ 144+
back over hurdles, capitalised on his lower hurdles in this sphere on first outing since leaving M. F. Morris after 7 months off; mid-field, not fluent 4 out, ridden before next, headway leaving back straight, chased leaders approaching 2 out, stayed on to lead run-in, all out to hold on; a temperamental sort for previous connections, it's far too early to say he's turned over a new leaf, but he's in excellent hands and is likely to remain of interest from a handicapping perspective.

again ran poorly; in touch early, lost place from fifth, struggling 5 out.

back under less testing conditions, found run of good form coming to a halt; led until slow second, remained prominent until sixth, ridden before 4 out, soon beaten.

is a temperamental sort so it remains to be seen how long resurgence lasts, but this was a step up on recent Navan win, his best effort since 2013/14 campaign in fact; handy, hit 3 out, effort soon after, kept on well from last, making the winner pull out all the stops and well on top of the rest, underlining that stamina is his strong suit.
4 Mar 17 Nav Hcap 1/6 3.75 Chase 127 24f Heavy (s) Rachael Blackmore (3) 4/15 6.59 150/- 3r 95.8 125 130? 149?
back down in trip, resumed winning ways having been suited by the way things developed, though whether or not this should be regarded as a return to form remains to be seen, the race rather falling into his lap in the straight; soon steadied, blundered fifth, slow eleventh, labouring 5 out, fourth and plenty to do entering straight, stayed on to lead last as others faltered (not fluent there), ridden out to assert run-in; he's not sure to be in same form next time.
5 Feb 17 Pun Hcap 7/15 40 Chase 129 28f Soft (s+t) Andrew Ring (3) 9/110 13 -/11 3 102.3 103 98 117
a previous winner of this race, was well held back over fences in first-time tongue strap; mid-division, ridden 5 out, made no impression.
19 Jan 17 Thu Hcap 8/14 43.5 Hurdle 128 20f Gd/Sft (s) Barry Foley (7) 25/126 51.43 -/19 1f 107.5 90 109
back over hurdles, continues below form, acknowledging he almost certainly did too much too soon on this occasion; pressed leader, led briefly 4 out, weakened from next.
27 Dec 16 Leo Hcap (0-150) 20/28 76 Chase 130 24.5f Gd/Sft (s) B. J. Cooper 25/126 49.25 -/34 3 102.8 89 71+ 90+
has lost way; mid-division, labouring 5 out, never a threat.
27 Nov 16 Nav Hcap (0-150) 16/25 59 Chase 133 24f Gd/Sft (b) Andrew Ring (5) 25/126 55.3 -/50 2x 102.3 107 94 113
in a change of headgear after 7 weeks off, continues out of sorts; lost early prominent position when making bad mistake first, beaten entering straight.
9 Oct 16 Lim Hcap pu/15 Chase 133 24f Gd/Sft (s) Andrew Ring (5) 14/115 33.68 -/25 104.4 ?
ran no sort of race; took little interest, struggling badly over circuit out, pulled up before tenth; his temperament has to be called into question now.
14 Sep 16 Lis Hcap pu/18 Chase 133 24f Heavy (s) B. J. Cooper 9/25.5f 6.2 -/6 3 101.3 ?
back down in trip, was strong in the betting but disappointed after 5 months off; mid-field, struggling early final circuit, behind when pulled up before 4 out.

shaped as if still in good form, just lacking the pace of the principals from 3 out and appealing as the sort to be suited by an even more extreme test of stamina; chased leaders, driven from 4 out, plugged on.
16 Apr 16 Ayr C1 Hcap bd/28 Chase 137 31.8f Gd/Sft (s) Andrew Ring (5) 16/117 25.74 -/11 3k 109.0 +
was shaping well until he departed, still in good form, even if it was too far out to say where he would have finished; waited with, travelled well, still going well when brought down twenty-second.

turned in his best effort of the season after 8 weeks off, well worth keeping to long-distance races; chased leaders, ridden from 4 out, one paced.

took step back in right direction after just 10 days off, for all he was rather laboured in doing so; prominent, mistake fifth, lost place briefly eleventh, reminders before twelfth, ridden 3 out, one paced.
21 Jan 16 Gow Hcap 11/18 71.5 Chase 135 25f Heavy (s) B. J. Cooper 8/19 10.7 -/10 2lx 102.0 65 84? 103?
failed to build on promise of last run, concerns raised at the time regarding his ability to back up that effort proving well founded; prominent, off bridle before most and lost place when mistake tenth, beaten after 5 out.
27 Dec 15 Leo Hcap (0-150) 3/28 4.75 Chase 130 24.5f Heavy (s) Shane Shortall (5) 20/1 -/ 4 100.6 148 134+ 153+
had been given a chance by the handicapper, 5 lb lower than when last seen for Conor O'Dwyer 13 months ago, and ran really well with cheekpieces fitted by new yard, proving that he retains plenty of ability; held up, chased leaders seventh, ridden 3 out, upsides between last 2, hung left after last, one paced; he'll remain potentially well treated but must have had a problem and isn't certain to go the right way from this.

20 Nov 14 Thu Listed 4/8 22.5 Chase L 22f Soft B. J. Cooper 28/129 50 -/36 2 130? 149?
back down markedly in trip, might have needed run after 7 months off; chased leaders, pushed along 5 out, no extra from next; long-distance handicaps bring out the best in him.

was beaten by more than lack of stamina over 1f longer trip, possibly found race coming too soon after his exertions in the Irish Grand National; mid-division, headway after 4 out, no further impression; worth another chance.
21 Apr 14 Fry Hcap 5/26 6.5 Chase 135 29f Good B. R. Dalton (3) 20/121 21.32 -/13 3r 136+ 155+
ran up to best; mid-field, hampered 5 out, outpaced approaching home turn, kept going well, barely adequate test; thorough stayer, goes well on testing ground.
30 Mar 14 Lim Grade 2 3/6 3.50 Chase G2 24f Heavy Paul Carberry 10/34.33 5.1 -/4.1 2xr 138+ 157+
ran respectably despite being let down by his jumping on the final circuit; in touch, led after ninth, headed when slow next, lost place through errors in back straight, rallied well run-in.
9 Mar 14 Naa Hcap 4/14 6 Chase 134 24f Soft Davy Russell 6/17 7.2 -/5.2 3 141 160
back up in trip, undone by rise in weights, wasted no time getting back to form; mid-field, effort when switched early in straight, one paced, pulled clear of remainder.
23 Feb 14 Naa Grade 2 2/3 35 Chase G2 20f Soft B. R. Dalton 9/25.5 9.07 -/1.3 5x 111+ 130+
in the same ownership as the winner, wasn't seen to best effect back down markedly in trip, better judged on previous form; soon steadied, slow 5 out and 4 out, remote second when not fluent 2 out, plugged on.
2 Feb 14 Pun Hcap 1/18 3.50 Chase 127 28f Heavy B. J. Cooper 7/18 9.25 50/- 3r 133+ 152+
back up markedly in trip, improved on what was his handicap debut in this sphere; mid-field, not fluent thirteenth, mistake next, stayed on to lead approaching last, asserted, won readily; better still than this as a hurdler so merits respect next time too.
16 Jan 14 Thu Novice 8/16 46 Chase N 16f Soft B. J. Cooper 5/16 7.56 -/7.2 3o 71+ 90+
back down markedly in trip, run best overlooked; struggled with pace, never better than mid-field, found the test inadequate; now qualified for handicaps.
1 Jan 14 Fry Novice 3/9 4.50 Chase N 21.5f Soft B. J. Cooper 9/43.25 3.78 -/2.4 1 125 144
needs to jump more fluently to progress; disputed lead, led again sixth, slow ninth, not fluent next, headed 3 out, kept on.
15 Dec 13 Nav Novice 4/9 30.5 Chase N 20f Gd/Sft Davy Russell 7/18 14.03 -/10 3x 109 128
useful over hurdles, lacks scope, on chasing debut, after 12 months off; mid-field, early mistakes, one paced.

28 Dec 12 Leo Grade 2 7/10 22 Hurdle G2 24f Soft B. J. Cooper 25/126 45.32 -/20 3 132 151
wasn't disgraced, no longer progressing; mid-division, laboured headway before 2 out, no extra; needs sights lowering.
30 Nov 12 Thu 2/11 2.00 Hurdle W 22f Heavy Davy Russell 11/43.75f 4 -/2.42 2 130 149
whose stable is struggling for winners, faced a stiff enough task at these weights and ran creditably, fitter for comeback; handy, challenged from home turn, untidy last, no extra, held every chance.
29 Oct 12 Naa Stks 4/5 12 Hurdle W 20f Soft Davy Russell 9/43.25jf 3.21 -/2.9 2 127+ 146+
whose yard haven't had a winner since May, shaped as if needing run after 7 months off, better judged on previous form; prominent, shaken up approaching 2 out, weakened approaching last, not knocked about once held; likely to prove a different proposition next time with this outing under his belt.

18 Mar 12 Nav Novice 4/7 13.5 Hurdle N 23f Soft Davy Russell 9/101.9f 1.92 -/1.79 2x 127 146
proved most disappointing stepped back up in trip and it's possible that all wasn't well, making a series of errors (worst one came at the third) and hanging left in the straight.
1 Mar 12 Thu Grade 2 2/6 3.25 Hurdle G2 20f Soft Davy Russell 1/12f 2.1 -/1.77 3 139 158
emerges with plenty of credit despite failing to complete his four-timer, briefly going second after reaching for 4 out, squeezing through along the inside having not enjoyed the clearest of passages in the straight and sticking on gamely to claim second on the run-in.
2 Feb 12 Clo 1/8 9 Hurdle L 22f Heavy Davy Russell 2/13f 3.15 4.3/- 139+ 158+
is out of the 2003 County Hurdle winner Spirit Leader but clearly possesses more stamina than his dam and emerged as a realistic contender for the Baring Bingham with another impressive success, not fluent at a couple as he was waited with on the outer but leading going well before the straight and asserting under just hands and heels, eased right down towards the finish.
19 Jan 12 Thu Novice 1/8 9.5 Hurdle N 22f Heavy Davy Russell 9/25.5 6.23 6.8/- 133+ 152+
took a major step forward from his maiden win to land this in the style of a very progressive novice, travelling well before shooting through along the inside to lead before the home turn and coasting home; he will stay 3m.
29 Dec 11 Lim Novice 1/14 2.50 Hurdle N 16f Heavy B. R. Dalton (7) 2/51.4f 1.41 2.56/- 101+ 120+
landed the odds in just workmanlike fashion and will need to improve if he's to make his mark in novice events, close up when not fluent at the fourth and hard ridden in a narrow lead when left in command by the runner-up's mistake at the last.
17 Nov 11 Thu Novice 2/16 1.50 Hurdle N 16f Heavy B. R. Dalton (7) 25/126 79.48 -/8 121+ 140+
made a most encouraging start to his hurdling career, staying on well for mostly hand riding from mid-field to snatch second late on; he will stay 2½m and should win a maiden without too much trouble.
