Seven wins include three at this track, the last of them over this trip in October; placed on his last two visits and was in front of several of these when beaten only a neck over 6f three weeks ago; generally reliable over the past 15 months in terms of finishing position but has regularly been a beaten favourite; first run for this yard.

Not the most consistent type and has a tendency to start slowly, as he did when last of ten at Cork on his penultimate start; much better when fourth at Down Royal but others make more appeal.

Ex-Irish 3yo who ran creditably in first-time cheekpieces at Wolverhampton last month on second start for new yard, taking form figures over 6f on AW to 2113 and shaping as if this drop back to 5f won't be a problem; still open to further progress in this sphere; shortlisted.

Scored twice at Dundalk (6f, Polytrack) last winter, but held since returning on turf in May including when eighth of ten on stable debut at Chester (7f, good to soft) last month; return to the AW may help and cheekpieces are given a go, but others look more solid.
