Cost 160,000GBP at a breeze-up sale and was well fancied for a 6f Curragh maiden on debut; ran a fine race but faded late on; the drop back to this trip should suit and is a big player.

Second foal; dam sprint maiden (RPR 66), half-sister to several sprint winners, out of 5f 2yo winner; 35,000gns yearling was a vendor buyback for 40,000gns as a 2yo; by a leading young sire and has respected connections, so should run well.

Has run to a similar level in 5f maidens at the Curragh and Cork, both on testing ground; the form of both those races is strong, with both the winners Group-placed since; withdrawn on last intended start at the Curragh when got upset in stalls; has the ability to win this.

Improved for the addition of a tongue tie, springing a 66-1 surprise at Dundalk in December (5f) and showing that to be no fluke with three good runs at the same venue, including a defeat of an older rival with a rating of 101; unplaced in a Newcastle handicap last month; stiff task at these weights,

The addition of a tongue tie has made a dramatic difference, springing a 66-1 surprise at Dundalk in December (5f) and showing that to be no fluke with three good runs since; latest defeat of an older rival with a rating of 101 reads well and, even if that isn't the most reliable piece of form, he's an improving sprinter who could still have more in the tank.
