Made the frame in pair of C&D maidens last spring before beating subsequent maiden winner at the Curragh (1m2f, good to yielding) with subsequent Irish Cesarewitch winner Waterville back in third; long absence not a concern from this yard; gelded, tongue-tie goes on and layers will take no chances with handicap debutant.
