Commanding C&D Derby Trial win in testing conditions in the spring but has encountered much quicker ground on all three starts since in Group 1 contests won by Auguste Rodin, pick being Epsom Derby fourth; reportedly didn't let himself down on the ground here in Champion Stakes on latest; down in class, handles these conditions and major player.

Started the season with a low-key Naas win before beating Up And Under and Proud And Regal in commanding fashion in the 1m2f Derby Trial at Leopardstown; ground was very testing then, but he handled quick going effectively when a creditable fourth in the Derby; met some trouble in running and did not look suited by the track, so his performance can be upgraded.

Form & Verdict

Won a 7f Gowran maiden in yielding ground last June before finishing second in the Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown; was below that level in similarly strong company twice after; unraced on ground this soft but plenty by her sire handle it; useful claimer's 7lb an asset.

Group 3 runner-up over 7f last July and reappeared with good second of four at Naas behind next-time-out Group 3 winner Sprewell; failed to kick on from that when Listed sixth in blanket finish at Chantilly; suffered serious interference in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot; chance on best form.

Group 3 runner-up (7f, good) last July and reappeared with good second of four at Naas (1m, heavy) behind next-time-out Group 3 winner Sprewell; failed to kick on from that when Listed sixth in blanket finish at Chantilly (1m, good to soft) last time but could nevertheless go well today.

Form & Verdict

All three starts have come on soft; won a Galway maiden over this trip on second run before showing better form when fourth to the top-class Auguste Rodin in the Group 2 KPMG Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown; should be fine on this ground and go close.

Just a maiden win on his scoresheet but has been kept in strong company since and has run several fine races in defeat in this grade and higher; cracking effort under a big weight in the Irish Lincoln six days ago; a big player here if none the worse for that run.
