Promise both starts (good), 2s on debut when second to the potential Derby winner before running here last time, a shade worrying he failed to settle both occasions; evidently a good prospect but this really hot on paper; behind Ballydoyle horses both races.

Always well found in the market and has done litltle wrong in good maidens, although connections probably disappointed that he hasn't obliged by now; looked another decent contest in which he was fourth over this trip at Cork on return; tongue-tie retained and, with a run under his belt, may get his turn.

Dam was narrowly denied in the Guineas at Newmarket and here for Olly Stevens; she was sharp and classy 2yo, which may help as, being by Galileo, he will probably need time for top yard; sister ran twice (this year at 3 for Michael Bell), RPRs around 66.
