A fine effort on debut last year behind a subsequent Group 3 winner but regressed next time on soft; returned with a solid effort at the Curragh when 1.75l in front of Lope De Rueda; should have improved from that and a big player with cheekpieces added.

Two good runs this season both over 1m2f; strong chance if equally effective at this trip; slight concern that his second on heavy ground at Navan was better than his third on good-to-yielding at Cork, though he was beaten under 2l; a stable outsider was too good for Cuban Dawn last week.

Second over 1m at Bellewstown; always prominent and rallied well up the hill to win useful 7f maiden at the Galway festival; not seen since and headgear left off; big step up in trip but dam 1m winner out of half-sister to 1m4f Group 1 winner and running style suggests he'll stay.
