Form & Verdict

Smart sprinter recorded career-best with all-the-way C&D win last month in Listed Woodlands Stakes, albeit on much more testing ground; has form on quicker ground, including close third to Tees Spirit in Tipperary Listed last summer; in the form of his life and another big run expected although this is competitive.

Twice a winner over this trip this time last year and some solid efforts in defeat towards the back-end of her juvenile campaign; nothing went right on recent seasonal return at Cork and has conditions to suit here but enters much deeper waters.

Front-runner's best performance came in winning Tipperary Listed last summer (Moss Tucker a close third) on favoured sound surface; soft ground against him when last in Prix de l'Abbaye final start and missed recent seasonal Newmarket return due to similar conditions; looks to have his ground here and bold bid anticipated.

Five front-running wins at 5f (on good and good to firm) in 2022, including in a Listed race; had a quiet time of it last year but he took advantage of a favourable mark to make all in a C&D handicap 18 days ago; has much more to do on these terms back in Group company.

Five-time winner has done most of his racing in handicaps at the Curragh and Dundalk; best of his four attempts in stakes races when second to Moss Tucker at the Curragh last October and over C&D last month when fourth behind same rival; stiff task here in a deeper race.
