Beat Zoffman (rec 6lb) under top-weight in this race last year when recording career-best RPR; promising reappearance here over 1m2f last month behind Crystal Black but never landed a blow behind same rival at Ascot nine days ago; respected nonetheless.

Her first British challenge saw a heavy defeat over hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival this March and she's not made a serious impact since, particularly on Flat; there was, however, a bold show from her in the Irish Cesarewitch at the Curragh (2m, yielding) last year.

Very useful juvenile hurdler; lightly-raced on the flat, didn't need to run to this rating to land lowly Sligo maiden on latest but no surprise if he proved competitive on handicap debut.

Progressive last year, winning twice and was just foiled in hat-trick attempt at Listowel festival; hurdling in the Spring, readily making all at Bellewstown last time; back from a short break but still on a competitive mark and ground coming in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at Sligo last month but disqualified as rider claimed the incorrect weight; well-backed to gain compensation off same mark at Cork 16 days ago but left with a fair bit to do when staying-on third (Zoffman second) over this trip; 2lb wrong here but interesting to see what tactics top US jockey employs.

Well-bred and progressive colt was recording third win from last four starts when just holding on over 1m6f here early this month; likes this good ground and although 12lb higher now this year retains respect.
