Clear prospects on his best form but there are several negatives attached to his profile too; beaten favourite on four occasions since a promising debut at the Curragh in May; appears to have lost form, though run was too bad to be true in 6f Curragh maiden in which Nouvel Espoir was third.

Promising start to his career last year and even better form in defeat with two narrow losses on testing ground this term; only missed out by a nose at the Curragh last time with First Gentleman 1l back in third and Roaming Star 2l back in fourth; sets the standard on form.
