Ballydoyle colt whose impressive sequence of wins included the Irish 1,000 Guineas, St James's Palace, Eclipse and Sussex; combination of faster ground (good to firm) and the effects of a very busy campaign can excuse his defeat in the International at York when last seen (unable to complete an eight-timer but still ran creditably on the figures); acts on heavy; comes back fresh following a deserved two-month break and remains worthy of great respect; top on ratings.

Won two 7f non-handicaps last backend and likeably consistent in defeat this season kept to 7f (Listed race latest); not obviously crying out for 1m and this is a stiff one; will need his best yet to defy highish mark in this hot handicap; effective on good or softer, unraced on good to firm.

Improved plenty from his debut at Navan to comfortably win a Dundalk maiden despite wandering around, both at 1m; seems to be his powerful yard's second-string but stays further, so will be coming home strongly.
