Form & Verdict

Well-bred sort is 2-15 but has competed with credit in stronger company than this, finishing second in the Grand Prix De Paris as a 3yo; well below best form on last two starts for Aidan O'Brien but if he can recover it on debut for this yard then is a major player.

Stays 2m but below-form seventh in the 2m5f Queen Alexandra in 2022; well treated today on best of his Group-race form for Aidan O'Brien and, switched to hurdling this year, he breezed home in front in a Bangor maiden (soft) for new yard ten days ago; case can be made.
