Won a Listed race at Listowel in 2021; failed to add to his score last year but ran a fine race in defeat behind Layfayette in the Group 2 Mooresbridge Stakes over C&D; missed the second half of the season but produced in good shape to win a Naas Listed event over this trip three weeks ago; now 3lb worse off with close-up fifth Self Belief.

Useful sort has won four times, including in this grade at Listowel in 2021; didn't add to his laurels last year but ran some cracking races in defeat, including in Group company; however, has been absent since June, so that tempers enthusiasm.

Went close in Group 1 on the Flat last May and, despite failing to shine on his final few Flat starts, he beat some talented rivals to win on hurdle debut at Leopardstown (2m, soft) in December; mid-race unseat in the Grade 1 Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle subsequently; has plenty of potential in this code given his peak Flat ability but there is a worry about his jumping; this race is likely to expose any frailties in that department.

Second in this last year; back to best when producing a really smart handicap performance to defy a big weight at the recent Epsom Derby meeting (1m2f, good to firm); cheekpieces worn on that occasion are retained; not long in the excellent George Boughey yard and should make a bold bid to go one place better than 12 months ago.
