Shaped well on debut for Johnny Feane in a 6f maiden at Naas last November, staying on late for fourth after starting slowly; looked in need of a trip such as this when keeping for second over an extended 5f at Sligo on first run for this stable; hood in use then, discarded now.

It was never in much doubt when impressively off the mark in a 1m maiden at Killarney in May; absent since and returns in a tongue-tie, but he's dangerously unexposed; market useful with the stable also running Vega Magnifico.

Has has improved significantly since blinkers were added, completing a Dundalk hat-trick (1m-1m4f) in December /January and even better form when second of 12 to Penzance over 1m2f at Lingfield five weeks ago; there's nothing wrong with that form so he's yet another who has to enter the reckoning.

Lightly raced on AW in Ireland but he has improved significantly since blinkers were added, most recently running away with a 1m handicap at Dundalk in January (taking him to 3-3 in headgear); no issue with the longer trip (won over 1m4f on penultimate start) but a 13lb rise for last time (raised a total of 28lb for the three wins), allied to significantly stronger opposition, could leave him vulnerable; his tendency to hang sharply right won't be an asset here either.

Has come good at this venue in recent months; second over the extended 1m2f in November; went one better over the same trip last month and backed that up with a 1m4f win here last Friday, asserting well to go away in the closing stages; now bids to complete a hat-trick under a 7lb penalty; possibly vulnerable based on previous 1m form.
