Solid efforts in three maidens to date; the worst of them coming over this C&D in May; even a reproduction of that though would make him very hard to beat.

Beaten under a length when 100-1 for a 1m2f maiden at Leopardstown (yielding to soft) and that form has been franked, with the winner now a useful hurdler for Paul Nicholls and the second successful next time at the Curragh; off since October but should have every chance.

Not a factor on debut in a bumper here in May; unusual prep for a 1m Flat maiden; hard to assess but cost E100,000 as a yearling and bred to be much more at home in this sort of race.

Sixth foal; half-brother to useful 1m winner Qatar Dream; dam 6f-9.5f winner including runner-up in the French 1000 Guineas; half-sister to listed winners over 1m3f and 1m2f; very well bred candidate for top Flat trainer; fascinating that he is starting out in a bumper and is a player.
