Former 83-rated juvenile, now racing off 63 after an unproductive campaign last season; holds a strong chance on last Saturday's Curragh second; never far from the pace then and has good prospects of confirming form with four runners who finished behind him.

Form & Verdict

Now has a 4-15 record at Dundalk following two recent victories; has picked up an extra 7lb for last Friday's 4l defeat of Collective Power; was running off 73 then, so has to be considered very interesting at this level; would be a confident choice if the ground was good, but hard to be sure he will cope with these conditions.
