Four-time winner, three wins at 6f; stepped up to 1m for the first time successfully when landing a Listed contest here last October; a little too keen when fifth behind Buckaroo over 1m here on reappearance; disappointing back at 7f in race won by Goldana at the Curragh.

Rock solid gelding goes well here and won this last year on soft to heavy; nothing wrong with his C&D return on heavy but he wouldn't want the ground to get any faster.

Form & Verdict

Best form was for Jessica Harrington two seasons ago when showing a particular liking for this C&D, winning two Pattern races here after a 7f handicap win; never managed to find best form last year; won readily at Dundalk in January on first run for this stable; faded late into fourth behind Order Of Australia in valuable 1m Doha event in February.
