Form & Verdict

Just a 2021 Curragh maiden win to his name so far; twice second near the end of last term, including when beaten one length by today's rival Mickey The Steel over C&D; holds a definite chance now following a recent Naas third; probably the pick of stable's three runners.

Winner of four of his last seven races including here on penultimate start, with Aljady back in fifth; raised 12lb for that, proved how reliable he has become with fifth placing at Naas last Saturday, but possibly a fraction too high in the ratings now.

Beat Jon Riggens over C&D last October, backing up a Dundalk maiden win achieved on his 25th start after eight seconds; that tendency to find one too good remains a concern, but he has a definite chance on the basis of Naas second in March; 10lb claim eases a big burden.
