Landed a pair of handicaps over further at Dundalk in the spring; 13lb higher now and his turf form would not be as good, but the champion jockey is booked and the stable is in terrific form; leading chance.

Well-bred filly won 7f maiden at Gowran last term and (blinkered first-time) touched off in handicap over that trip at same venue in June; another good effort when beaten fractions over C&D last month and merits consideration off 2lb higher mark.

Three wins at Dundalk in February last year; brought his AW tally to six with a win the same month this year, scoring with more in hand than the half-length margin would suggest (met trouble); down the field at Chelmsford last month; held by a couple of these on recent Leopardstown running; 0-16 on turf, placed only once.
