Ex-Irish maiden sprinter who achieved little for John O'Shea in last three runs; combination of first-time hood and new trip needs to make a big difference on debut for Adrian Wintle.

Performed well in classified events last month, opening his account at Lingfield (7.5f, good to firm) then close second to Fact Or Fable at Bath (1m, firm) despite being hampered by that rival; in-form contender who warrants respect despite a 7lb rise in his mark.
