Form & Verdict

Went close from the front once in 2021; not quite at his best in light 2022 but third of 14 at Dundalk (10.6f, Polytrack; AW debut) on final outing was the best of those results; sold out of Joseph O'Brien's for 42,000gns later in October; needs a close look, particularly if strong in the betting.

Unraced here but has run well on three other AW tracks, including Lingfield (Polytrack); never better than when winning at Wolverhampton on latest outing, under star apprentice Billy Loughnane; this 4lb higher mark is a career high but he needs respect as one of not many who bring good recent form.
