Form & Verdict

Home-bred gelding by Yeats from a solid family; looked potentially useful when beating a horse with previous experience on his debut at Leopardstown three weeks ago; quite closely matched with Cappuccino on collateral form involving runner-up Sattam; 4lb penalty not a major drawback.

Won both his bumpers last March and it was some run to finish fourth in the Grade 2 at Leopardstown in February after 11 months away; finished under 3l behind You Oughta Know and was travelling every bit as well as that eventual runner-up until stopped in his tracks and losing all momentum (and ground) 2f from home; to finish where he did was highly commendable; from a triply represented yard that usually has one in the mix here; big shout.

Home-bred Yeats gelding looked potentially smart when beating a horse with previous experience on his debut over C&D last March; backed that up when landing a Listed bumper Limerick later in the month; that did not look like a strong race for its status but he is hard to fault; a senior rider aboard.
