Form & Verdict

Solid efforts in maidens at Killarney and the Curragh last season, both over 1m on good; confirmed promise in a handicap on heavy ground over this trip on seasonal debut at Leopardstown, staying on from off the pace to finish a short head second, 5l clear of the remainder; sets the standard.

Entered in Irish Derby and Irish St Leger; showed promise on good ground last summer and stayed on strongly from off the pace, but a fraction too late, in handicap at Leopardstown (1m2f, heavy) on reappearance; no difficulty when 4-9 in maiden at Navan (1m2f, soft) on his only start since; into a hot race but he's a striking candidate for 1m4f.

Progressive horse; did enough to win a Dundalk maiden in January and followed up having been gelded in good style in a 1m4f handicap at the same venue; seems to handle soft ground and a 4lb penalty for his last win is not excessive; leading chance.
