Lowest rated in the line-up and well held lately; stays 1m4f well but this is a new trip for him; big outsider.

9st 7lb

J: Rory Cleary

T: J S Bolger

Just a maiden win on his scoresheet but has been kept in strong company since and has run several fine races in defeat in this grade and higher; cracking effort under a big weight in the Irish Lincoln six days ago; a big player here if none the worse for that run.

Maiden winner at two over this trip on soft; fairly highly tried last term over longer trips, beaten no more than 2l on last three starts at Listed level; likely to be done for pace back at a mile; first run in a handicap.
