Form & Verdict

Pipped off AW mark of 90 at Dundalk in the autumn; much the best of three starts this term when fourth of 14 in valuable Nasrullah Handicap over C&D a week ago; no late extra on that first try over this far but you couldn't say he didn't stay.

Dual AW winner was below form in a premier h'cap last time but coming back to this track will suit and has to be considered even though unproven over this far.

Form & Verdict

A 7f maiden winner on heavy last back-end; bumped into one when second at Naas on his return and mark went up to 86 after that; more fairly treated now and has been shaping like he wants farther in last couple of starts over 7f; whether he wants this far remains to be seen.

Form & Verdict

Has been sweetened up by individual attention since joining small yard; won over 1m here on seasonal/stable debut and again came home well from off the pace when second of 14 at Roscommon (1m2f); another 3lb tacked on but has his chance.
