Thriving here with summer maiden win and, after a break, narrowly beaten in C&D handicap by a stablemate before going one better at the expense of Dalvey last month, scoring a shade snugly; type to keep progressing and 5lb rise may not stop him.

Won his last two at Dundalk during the winter but that's more his scene having gained all five wins at that track; 0-6 on turf but he's armed with a lower mark, having defied 7lb higher last time.
