Three wins and plenty of other decent efforts to her name at Dundalk but she's struggled for this yard and has twice been well below market expectations for them on Polytrack; has it all to prove now.

Belatedly opened account at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March and was third over 1m in his next three races (twice on Polytrack); claims if judged on that evidence but is yet to convince over 1m2f and needs to bounce back from a duff effort on turf three weeks ago.

Took a long time to get off the mark but he hit the target at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March and has held his form with three thirds since, including on turf at Brighton (1m, good) on his penultimate run; should be in the mix again on this step back up in trip and he's respected.
