Form & Verdict

First-time blinkers and drop to claiming company enabled him to get back to the winning thread at Tipperary in May (Tai Sing Yeh third) and recent third in Gowran handicap was a solid run considering his tardy start; major chance on ratings but this drop in trip may not play to his strengths.

Twice successful in claiming races this season; solid handicap form too, though the extended 6f proved inadequate at the Curragh last time; same 10lb claimer rode him to beat Is That Love at Limerick; fair prospects of another success.

Awarded a mark of 82 after winning a Tipperary maiden last summer but all three efforts since have been poor, including when cheekpieces tried last time at Dundalk; reduced mark but very questionable he can run to that on first start for new yard.

Ex-Irish; sole win came in 2022 and doesn't look solid on 2023 form; however, has possibilities dropped to this weak level on debut for new yard; market support should be heeded.

Good effort in second spot behind Rockbury Lad (gave 1lb) last week, but more went right than wrong for him on that occasion and once again came up a small bit short; often flatters to deceive but at the same time, sound each-way claims, albeit from a bad draw.

Long-standing maiden spurned another good chance on the beach last week; has gone close against good horses but basically flatters to deceive and is not one to trust, although placed several times here and chance of being in the first three again from gate one.
