Stepped up on each start as a 3yo last year; RPRs went from 38 to 78 to 80; second in 7f maiden at this venue when last seen in September; should go well.

Form & Verdict

Trainer said he has "done well over the winter and could be exciting" in a recent stable tour; sole start as a 2yo was over 7f at Roscommon last August; travelled strongly to the 2f pole there and wasn't knocked about once beaten; earned an RPR of 83 for that and any improvement upon that here makes him a big player.

Acclaim gelding who originally cost EUR120,000 as a foal back in 2019 but has obviously had issues as only making debut now as a 4yo; dam unraced sister to Listed-placed 6f 2yo winner; wears a tongue-strap; best watched.

Deep Impact half-sister to 5f-6f winner Provocateuse (RPR 102), from good-class family; weak in market and hooded when making pleasing debut in end of season Leopardstown 2yo maiden, running a bit in snatches but showing enough speed when second over 7f (soft); type to improve at 3 and likely major player here.
