Comes from a speedy family and he ran out an impressive winner on his debut over 5f at Cork (soft to heavy); improved when edged out by Coventry fourth Givemethebeatboys (His Majesty close up in third) in 6f Curragh Group 3 (good) 26 days ago, travelling powerfully for a long way; the return to 5f looks the right move and he ought to be in the shake-up.

Sole win from ten starts at two came in an ordinary Dundalk race, better form when second in a Listed event at the same venue; decent turf form in defeat although below best latest in Cornwallis at Newmarket (hampered and eased); unplaced favourite for a Group 3 event at Dundalk on final start.

Well beaten when 66-1 for nursery debut at Ffos Las (6f, soft) in late July; sports first-time cheekpieces here and today's trip-and-surface combination may show him in a better light, but it still takes a leap of faith to support him.
