Form & Verdict

Really consistent, ground- and trip-versatile; 7f likely not ideal latest at Curragh but nice progress when he got in the clear and big player for legendary yard which runs Subzero; highly significant he is Moore's apparent choice (though he never rode him).

Five starts, last four in blinkers; 10-11 but improved in a ten-runner handicap at Navan (1m2f, good) 13 days ago, slowly away but quickly close up, leading final 1f and winning in tidy fashion; probably remains well handicapped and could be capable of better again.

Form & Verdict

2s or shorter, progressive in maidens and perhaps value for more than winning margin at Curragh (neck; proximity of third suggests he may struggle to beat Satin, albeit getting weight off her); bred to be much better than 82 for top yard that runs Canute, ridden by the stable jockey.

OUR TIP

Form: U60-1

Last run: 8 days

3 yo Filly

OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Filly seemed transformed over winter when winning easily at Listowel last week at 10s, collateral form giving her the beating of Subzero; Irish Oaks entry suggests she is highly regarded and marksman taking a chance with rating of 87 in theory; trip seems certain to suit.
