Form & Verdict

Looked a real prospect when winning a Leopardstown maiden in April; bounced back from a disappointing reversal in the Cheshire Oaks to land the Group 1 Prix Saint-Alary at Longchamp in May; unexposed and won't mind any cut there is in the ground; interesting.

Acts on soft; French Group 1 winner early last season and better form on four occasions since, most notably perhaps when dictating the pace and never seriously threatened in Group 2 at Saint-Cloud in May, when Nashwa failed to fire in fourth; respectable third in Group 1 at the Curragh on latest start; looks set for another prominent finish.
