Form & Verdict

1m maiden winner at Leopardstown on second start at two, building on introductory second over 7f at Naas; stablemate Covent Garden arguably has a stronger staying pedigree, though Galileo's influence for stamina is a plus-factor.

Very useful (1m4f-1m6f) last year for Aidan O'Brien and made 100,000gns in September; won hurdles debut in February but weakened right out of it three weeks later and tailed off in a Group 3 (125-1) when returned to Flat three weeks ago; has first-time headgear in revival bid for handicap debut.

One of three runners for his trainer; ran in a barrier trial at Dundalk last August; trip should be within his range judged on his debut maiden win over 1m3f at Limerick; that looked like a weak race, so he will need to be progressive.

One of three for Joseph O'Brien; Dylan Browne McMonagle has ridden on both starts; won on debut at Limerick (1m3f, soft) in April and close second to Peking Opera in Listed race at Navan (1m5f, soft) latest; having raced just twice, he could have lots more to offer and is one to be interested in.

Galway maiden winner; fourth of five in Leopardstown Group 2 won by Auguste Rodin last September; has confirmed a fair standard of form at 1m2f, but this longer trip is not guaranteed to help his cause; cheekpieces on for the first time.

Dam is a 1m4f-winning half-sister to the top-class Shamardal and sister to Group 2 winner Geoffrey Chaucer; made late headway when sixth of 14 in a 1m Curragh maiden last September; had plenty to spare when winning a C&D maiden three weeks ago; further improvement is on the cards.

1-6 on Flat, fairly useful form up to 1m5f; won hurdles debut at Killarney in August and first past the post (demoted for interference) at Listowel; gelded and took his form to a higher level in December with Grade 3 win at Fairyhouse (soft) and a close third in Grade 2 at Leopardstown (yielding); stayed on well last time (a nose behind Kargese) and has each-way claims.

Half-brother to winners who stayed well; winning dam is a sister to 1m4f Group 1 winner Pether's Moon; looked a promising sort when third over 1m4f on debut at Leopardstown; faces a stiff task against five winners, including two from his stable.

Behind three of these when last of six in Navan Listed race (1m5f, soft) last month but was beaten about only 2l on that second start and his strong finish in that slowly run race suggests his performance can be marked up; game win in Fairyhouse maiden (1m4f, good) 12 days ago and this unexposed colt could be about to take a big step forward; one of three for yard.
