Best of three maiden runs was when a close fourth over 1m at Dundalk second time out; entitled to have needed the run on handicap debut at Killarney (1m, good to yielding) and it looked that way; cheekpieces added.

Off the mark at the fifth attempt when landing a Gowran handicap from 3lb lower in June; struggled since though and looks flattered by that effort; needs to prove he's as effective on AW.

Form & Verdict

His best run was on debut here in October (1m) when beaten under 5l on soft ground; interesting if he can tap back into that promise and it wasn't his first below-par run on ground bordering on heavy when performing below market expectations on handicap debut; could go well despite this marked drop in distance.

Galway maiden winner on soft over 7f; hasn't progressed in handicaps over various distances and the cheekpieces tried last time are swiftly removed; others preferred.

1-15 on the Flat but stayed well; beaten between 8l and 21l in three Irish maidens won by smart novices (hooded the last twice) and it could well be that today's quicker ground will benefit, as was the case on the Flat; an interesting handicap debutante; races prominently.

0-8; ran well on occasions last season but, having been gelded, it was a quiet return in maiden company at Tipperary (7.5f, good) and that race was run in a slower time than the claimer on that card; others preferred.

Didn't quite see out the 1m2f in a Navan maiden last week but ran well, probably showing improved form; if given a lift by blinkers she won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Accounted for a subsequent Leopardstown maiden winner on the AW in February and ran a fair race in Listed company next time; safe to say that soft to heavy ground found her out when running no race on her handicap debut; not on a bad mark and tongue tied this time.
