Form & Verdict
Went close in 30-runner handicap here in June and more recently gained only second career win, asserting inside final furlong at Naas, winning with a bit in hand; 7lb rise takes him to a career-high mark so stiff task but could be up to it.

Cork winner last year and returned to yard after two modest runs in France last autumn when out of depth in Cork Listed but more encouraging run in handicap here on Oaks weekend, keeping on late over 5f; extra furlong here to suit and 2lb lower so worth a look.
