Jumps: well-made gelding: high-class hurdler: won Matheson Hurdle at Leopardstown (by 2 lengths from Aspire Tower) in December: 11/1, at least as good as ever when 6½ lengths second of 10 to Honeysuckle in Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham last time (runner-up also in 2020 renewal), suited by way race developed though no match for winner: raced only at 2m: acts on heavy going: wears tongue tie nowadays: travels well held up.

was quickly back to form, at least as good as ever in taking second for the second year running, well served by the way the race was run; held up, travelled well, headway after 3 out, chased leader approaching last, stayed on, no match for winner.
6 Feb 21 Leo Grade 1 3/6 19 Hurdle G1 16f Soft (t) Mr P. W. Mullins 10/34.33 4.81 -/4.3 5 97.9 146 144+ 153+
wasn't in the same form as last time, not ideally placed the way things panned out but unlikely to got close to the winner no matter which way he was ridden; dropped out, still plenty to do 2 out, headway under pressure entering straight, kept on, never a threat; runner-up in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham last year, a place is probably the best he can again hope for back there next month.
29 Dec 20 Leo Grade 1 1/7 2 Hurdle G1 16f Soft (t) Mr P. W. Mullins 11/26.5 7.62 12/- 4K 101.8 171 157+ 166+
made it a hat-trick in this race after 5 months off (last seen on the Flat), underestimated in the betting as he'd been in the last 2 renewals, setting the standard coming in and needing only to run close to his best to burst a couple of bubbles; held up, travelled strongly, not fluent 3 out, good progress after 2 out, loomed up approaching last, quickened to lead run-in, driven clear; he seemed to have few excuses when beaten by Epatante in last season's Champion Hurdle, though that one has left the door ajar slightly with a disappointing effort in last week's Christmas Hurdle.

in first-time tongue strap (on Flat), is better over jumps than on the level but wasn't seen to anything like best effect; dropped out, tanked along, steady headway out wide from halfway, every chance entering straight, no extra, did too much too soon; won't be one to dismiss lightly if turned out again in a 1½m handicap here on Saturday.
28 Jun 20 Cur Hcap 4/18 8 Turf 92 16f Gd/Sft William James Lee 4/15 7.72 -/5.1 5 114.6 89 95 104
4 months on from his cracking Champion Hurdle run, wasn't seen to best effect back on the Flat, the leaders getting away while he was still searching for room; in rear, effort when hampered over 2f out, kept on inside final 1f.

duly put his poor showing at Leopardstown last time behind him, making his move after the winner, but not a threat to her after he went second; dropped out, travelled well, good progress approaching last, went second run-in, ran on, no impression on winner.
1 Feb 20 Leo Grade 1 6/9 11 Hurdle G1 16f Gd/Sft (t) Mr P. W. Mullins 2/13 4.48 -/2.94 2 104.1 146 137+ 146+
can have a line put through this run, clearly not 100% on the day; chased leaders, not always fluent, ridden 2 out, soon done with; type to bounce back quickly and won't be one to dismiss lightly if lining up at Cheltenham.
29 Dec 19 Leo Grade 1 1/5 3.75 Hurdle G1 16f Gd/Sft (t) Mr P. W. Mullins 9/25.5 8 8.4/- 4k 101.0 161 159+ 168+
back in a tongue strap, proved better than ever to land this race for the second year in a row, his turn of foot again proving decisive; held up, smooth headway from 3 out, produced to lead last, quickened clear; now a 3-time Grade 1 winner over hurdles, he has to be considered a live Champion Hurdle contender in what is an open year.
16 Nov 19 Pun Grade 1 4/5 8.5 Hurdle G1 16.5f Soft Mr P. W. Mullins 7/24.5 4.85 -/4.5 3 105.6 153 141+ 150+
who won this race last year, was below form on his first start since brought down at the third in the Champion Hurdle; mid-division, in contention 3 out, ridden entering straight, effort flattened out; likely to be much closer to form next time.

failed to complete, through no fault of his own; held up, brought down third.

29 Dec 18 Leo Grade 1 1/6 3.75 Hurdle G1 16f Good Mr P. W. Mullins 6/17 7.6 23/- 4 109.1 110 152+ 161+
added another Grade 1 success following on from the Morgiana, this a stronger event in theory but not practice, showing much the best turn of foot in a race in which the main players were a long way below their peak, and he probably didn't need to improve his form to run out a comfortable winner; waited with, not fluent second, crept closer after 2 out, quickened to lead approaching last and scooted clear on the run-in, well on top at the finish; it's hard to say quite where this leaves him with regards the Champion Hurdle, still with a good bit to find in terms of winning the race in all likelihood.
18 Nov 18 Pun Grade 1 1/4 7.5 Hurdle G1 16.2f Good P. Townend 7/24.5 5.5 6.8/- 4kj 103.7 160 163+ 172+
resumed winning ways, in doing so breaking his duck at Grade 1 level, belatedly so having had last season's Future Champions Novices' Hurdle at his mercy when falling at the last, suited by the way this race developed; patiently ridden, jumped fluently, travelled well, took closer order before 3 out, went second next, quickened to lead early in straight, driven clear; given he's just a 5-y-o, there is a chance that there is further improvement to come, though he'll need to find another 7 lb or so to become a genuine Champion Hurdle contender, generally a 33/1 shot for that race.
2 Nov 18 Dow Grade 2 3/4 6.5 Hurdle G2 16f Good R. Walsh 5/23.5 3.59 -/2.24 1 104.8 144 145 154
was getting weight from his 2 main rivals but, as in a couple of recent Flat outings, failed to reach the expected heights, some way below the level he'd hit in the contrasting circumstances of the Galway Hurdle, worn down by Samcro on the run to 2 out and soon held in third, no extra at the last.
14 Oct 18 Nav Hcap 10/24 9.5 Turf 93 16f Gd/Sft Seamie Heffernan 8/19 9.46 -/7 4 104.3 85 92 101
returned to form but wasn't seen to best effect; raced off the pace, not clear run over 3f out, headway over 2f out, effort flattened out, left poorly placed.
15 Sep 18 Leo Hcap 14/16 12.5 Turf 93 12.8f Gd/Frm C. T. Keane 10/34.33jf 4.1 -/3.9 4 99.0 95 84 93
winner of the Galway Hurdle 6 weeks earlier, failed to meet expectations making his Flat/handicap debut for Willie Mullins; waited with, pushed along entering straight, soon beaten.
2 Aug 18 Gal Hcap 1/20 3 Hurdle 146 16.1f Soft Mr P. W. Mullins 12/113 14.83 48/- 2kr 101.6 154 149+ 158+
had seen his development stall in graded novice company towards the back of last season, but resumed progress with a vengeance pitched into handicap company for the first time, looking a high-class hurdler in the making; led briefly early, remained prominent, loomed up home turn, produced to lead run-in, responded well; he'll be well worth his place at a higher level next time.
5 Jul 18 Tip Grade 3 3/11 3 Hurdle G3 16f Good D. J. Mullins 3/14 4.69 -/2 103.3 148 140 149
ran up to best after 10 weeks off, though possibly didn't apply himself as well as he might when things got serious late on; mid-field, progress from early final circuit, ridden from 2 out, carried head awkwardly, kept on.
72 day break
24 Apr 18 Pun Grade 1 6/10 20 Hurdle G1 16.5f Gd/Sft (t) Mr P. W. Mullins 11/112 16 -/16 4 102.3 132 125 134
in first-time tongue strap, shaped similarly to last time; held up, pushed along after 3 out, made no impression.
2 Apr 18 Fry Grade 2 4/9 14 Hurdle G2 16f Heavy D. J. Mullins 9/25.5 5.81 -/5 2 108.0 126 123 132
ran respectably, his limitations having been exposed in graded events of late, though he's possibly ready for a step up in trip now; chased leaders, third early in straight, kept on.
13 Mar 18 Chl C1 Grade 1 8/19 10.5 Hurdle G1 16.4f Soft P. Townend 20/121 29 -/10 4 97.4 149 131+ 140+
contesting a third successive Grade 1 novice, got back on track, proving at least as good as ever; held up, effort before 2 out, one paced approaching last; he's raced solely at around 2m on soft going so far, this probably his limit under such circumstances.
4 Feb 18 Leo Grade 1 7/11 14 Hurdle G1 16f Soft P. Townend 4/15 6.28 -/5.5 3 102.2 138 127 136
failed to repeat the form he'd have shown in the Future Champions, when he'd looked a better animal than both Reel Steel and Whiskey Sour, this muddling affair perhaps not showing him to best advantage; mid-field, headway when shaken up entering straight, forced wide, effort flattened out.
27 Dec 17 Leo Grade 1 F/7 Hurdle G1 16f Soft Mr P. W. Mullins 8/19 9.49 -/1.04 4k 95.9 137+ 146+
seemingly the stable second string on jockey bookings, is going the right way and was unlucky not to win, going best when falling independently of Real Steel at the last; held up, took closer order early final circuit, loomed up entering straight, upsides when fell last; open to further improvement.
25 Nov 17 Gow Stks 1/5 4 Hurdle W 16f Heavy P. Townend 13/82.62f 2.71 4.8/- 2 126.8 30 137+ 146+
confirmed the good impression made on debut for this yard back in September, although how much improvement he actually showed is difficult to quantify, the emphasis on speed suiting him better than the other principals; close up, untidy 3 out, headway out wide entering straight, quickened to lead last, pushed out; will go on improving.
57 day break
29 Sep 17 Gow Novice 1/19 5 Hurdle N 16f Heavy R. Walsh 1/12f 2.2 2.52/- 2Kj 114.6 121 116+ 125+
useful on Flat (stays 12.5f) in France for H-F. Devin, has joined a top yard and made a very convincing start to life over hurdles after 12 months off; jumped well, travelled strongly, disputed lead until third, remained prominent, upsides again 2 out (usual 3 out), drew clear straight, impressive; sure to progress and win more races.
