Dispatched inferior opposition in Naas Group 3 (6f, good to yielding) in August, but was then a well-held favourite for a similar event at the Curragh (6f, soft) four weeks ago; needs a jolt of improvement to take this, but an earlier frame finish in the Commonwealth Cup at the Royal meeting here suggests she might have it in her to bridge the gap.

Progressive last season when the tongue-tie went on, landing a hat-trick, and the steady pace was against him when fourth at Leicester in October when last seen; this 4yo is open to further improvement this term and he's 2-2 here (both over this trip, including on good to soft); one to consider.

An improving 3yo who was nicely on top in the closing stages when bringing up his hat-trick at Epsom (1m4f, good); escapes a penalty for that and dropping back to 1m2f won't bother him; raised in grade but looks a major player.
