A 10 year old for Willie Mullins, Cash Back started life over in France but failed to win in his 2 hurdle starts over there. Despite a massive lay off, he moved to Mullins’ yard and got off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles.
Failing to win in his last two runs over hurdles connections quickly went chasing with him and he shaped with plenty of promise in his novice season over fences. Winning his first two starts before a narrow 2nd place in the Irish Arkle.
A series of falls followed however.
Failing to complete in three consecutive starts saw him have a year away from racing and come back last December.
However his only win this season has come over 2.5 miles over hurdles. Unable to get close to Energumene on reappearance, he was soundly beat by Chacun Pour Soi in the Dublin Chase last time out.
His novice form stands him in good stead but his shaky record over fences makes him hard to trust.
