Classy sort was fourth in last year's Irish St Leger; has a poor strike-rate but went some way to improving it when bolting up under this rider at Listowel (1m6f) last month; bumped into an impressive winner when second on hurdles bow since; highest-rated and obvious chance although would ideally prefer a bit further.
