Form & Verdict

Dual C&D winner also scored at Leopardstown in the summer; mark has risen sharply but fine effort when close third to Pierre Lapin here last month; came from the rear off a slow pace so it was a very creditable run but not as well drawn on this occasion.

Winning 2yo in France where he had a bit of AW form as well; some very useful turf handicap form, without winning, in Britain; bought for £38,000 in the spring and decent run on second start for this yard when mid-field at Leopardstown last month; interesting with Foley booked.
