Still a maiden after three starts; looks inferior to stablemate Cairo on that basis, though he shaped well behind another Ballydoyle colt last time.

Looked useful when making all to win a maiden over this trip on debut at Naas last month; handled easy ground then, but dirt-oriented pedigree suggests he might not want it too soft; promising sort all the same.

Highly tried after winner a Curragh maiden as a 2yo; revived by the switch to AW this winter, winning a 6f handicap at Dundalk in December (solid form) and then an eyecatching third back there five weeks ago (10lb claimer reported after the race that he was keen not to hit the front too soon); unlikely to be seeing too much daylight from stall 2 and James Doyle takes over in the saddle; perhaps not straightforward but he appeals as being better than his mark.
