Easily best effort in Ireland was when coming clear in a 2m3f maiden at Kilbeggan (good to yielding) last spring; only fifth of eight at Ballinrobe in the summer, after which he left the Peter Croke stable; needs a surge of improvement but he's joined a good yard and that's not out of the question.
