Ran a bit green but kept on well when fourth in a Limerick maiden on debut in June; should improve for that and the stiffer mile is likely to suit; should be thereabouts.

Relished testing conditions on second maiden start to win over extended 1m at Galway festival (second and third have both won recently), getting up late: opening mark on the high side but longer trip seems likely to bring further improvement and blinkers now fitted.

Similar level of form in maidens; reportedly hung left for pressure when runner-up in a Killarney maiden last month; a repeat will see him in the mix once again.
