Nicely progressive once upped to 1m2f, winning Roscommon handicap and made plenty of use of at the Curragh when third in competitive contest; didn't appear to stay 1m4f in testing conditions at Bellewtown however, having forced the pace; back in trip here and respected although ground concerns remain.

Maintained his momentum with a breakthrough success in his fourth handicap at Down Royal (1m2f, good) when the first-time cheekpieces did him no harm; won cosily enough but a 10lb rise asks a question of him.

Some good form at this trip over the summer and better again when upped in trip to win over 1m6f at Listowel on soft and good Down Royal third when cheekpieces added; progressive and handles these conditions but ideally may want more of a stamina test.

First run over 1m4f when a decisive winner at Fairyhouse (1m4f, good) and his sixth at Down Royal was in the Ulster Derby behind a Group horse; drops back to 1m2f but could go well if taking to the blinkers.

Has a claim as the form horse here on this third behind subsequent Listed-placed stablemate St Vincents Garden in a 1m4f maiden Fairyhouse in June; however, his subsequent form casts significant doubts, especially his last of six in a handicap over this tip at Listowel.

Runner-up in two maidens over 7f/1m on the Flat for Michael Bell last year; creditable third on jumps debut at Killarney in July (2m, good) but poor effort on softer ground over C&D last time; cheekpieces tried; looks stable second string.
