Didn't fulfill the promise of his Galway debut second (hvy) when beaten 8l into fourth at Tipperary next time after racing keenly; that winner subsequently won a Group 1, so it wasn't a bad run either; needs to settle better but a big shout if doing so; yard in form.

Debut promise last summer at Gowran then flopped on heavy at Galway and absent until landing odds in Dundalk maiden early this month, having to battle over 7f; good chance he'll improve for this step up in trip and could prove to be on a lenient enough initial mark.

Plenty of experience at two, notably final start when strong-finishing third in very valuable Naas sales event on soft (7f); good second on seasonal return over same trip in Madrid Handicap at Naas (with My Mate Alfie and Military behind), maintained progression with 5f rated race win at the Curragh.
