Very consistent on AW over the winter and has hit the ground running since returning to turf, recording wins at Navan and Sligo under positive rides, defying wide draw on latest; once again not the kindest of draws but has to be considered a major player.

Form & Verdict

Joint-highest-rated in the line-up; latest of his four wins came over 7f at Dundalk in December and runner-up three times at that venue since; turf form not so good and has a bit to find with Mischief Star on latest Tipperary claiming effort when extended 7f bit too far; slightly shorter trip here to suit and nicely drawn.
