T: W J Austin

Nine-race maiden but posted a much improved effort when runner-up at odds of 80-1 at Punchestown 13 days ago; 2lb rise could be a bit lenient (front three pulled clear).

Has hinted at a return to form of late and his fifth of 14 at Limerick last time when stepped back up in trip was his best run for a while; off 86 days and cheekpieces now fitted.
