J: Ben Coen

T: Emmet Mullins

Does not look straightforward but he delivered some solid runs as a Flat stayer last summer, including a last-gasp win over 2m1f at Killarney; fit from hurdling and respected on the best of his form.

Form & Verdict

Ran away with the Chester Cup consolation race in May on the back of a 561 day absence; not so clever on good ground at Royal Ascot; conditions should be more to his liking here and an interesting UK runner.

1m2f maiden winner for Ballydoyle and won first two hurdles before being very disappointing in pair of Grade 2 contests; returns to the Flat after nearly four months off but not one that can be easily dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Up 14lb for a hat-trick of wins in handicaps from March to May; ran a cracker when a very close third in a premier handicap at the Curragh last month; in here off the same mark and should be okay at the trip; each-way chance.
