Placed in two races won by horses on the upgrade, third at Sligo when Whisky On The Hill recorded the second leg of a hat-trick, second to Ulster Derby runner Matt Connor at Fairyhouse; may improve a little in cheekpieces and appears likely to play a leading part.

Form & Verdict

Very little went right on his handicap debut over 1m at Leopardstown; strong-finishing third was a good effort in the circumstances; big price then, but was well fancied when winning over the same course and trip last week; looked ready to step up in trip and may cope with 8lb rise.

Hampered at the start and very little went right on his handicap debut here last week, so to be a fast-finishing third was an excellent effort; has a bad draw to overcome here but has leading claims if things go better here.
