Form & Verdict

Has improved steadily with every start and will not have to improve too much to make an impact, especially as this galloping track should play to strengths; divided a couple of subsequent dual winners in December and he has leading claims.

Shaped with a good deal of promise on debut at Dundalk last month, where he left the impression that the step up to this trip would suit (backed up by distaff side of pedigree); has left Joseph O'Brien but very much of interest this time.

Form & Verdict

Fair form on second start (September: 1m, yielding ground), easily the pick of his three efforts in Ireland and picked up for 15,000gns last October; enough in pedigree to think he should stay this far and one to note in first-time blinkers with tongue-tie refitted.

Off the mark over hurdles at sixth attempt, coming from off the pace for clearcut C&D win in May, and both subsequent runs were perfectly respectable; seems quite versatile ground-wise and is likely to make her presence felt again.
