Gained early-season wins over 1m at the Curragh and over 7f at Gowran; not at his best in recent races over 1m4f; encouraging to see him reunited with Colin Keane who was aboard for his last win, but others preferred.

Only three wins from 33 starts but placed 12 times; has done plenty of racing since winning off 11lb lower over 1m at Leopardstown in April; form has been uneven, but managed a solid effort when fourth of 16 at the same venue last time.

Form & Verdict

Went up 8lb for beating excellent yardstick Urban Oasis at Gowran, form advertised when the runner-up gained his fourth success of the season in landing the Ulster Derby at this venue; probably best to forgive his unplaced run at Roscommon, since very soft ground may not have suited and he met trouble in running.

A bit high in the ratings after winning three races last year; however, an encouraging run on latest suggests she will be competitive here; only one length behind runner-up Prime Chief when third to easy winner Supagirl at Navan 13 days ago.
