From a fine family; easy to back at Kilbeggan (yielding) but travelled strongly before pulling well clear of two horses who had shown ability; looks above average and hard to ignore that Patrick Mullins prefers him to Aurora Vega.

Beat the useful Croke Park by 11l on debut at Kilbeggan last May and landed the odds at the Galway festival; returned from a good break with a fine second behind Jeroboam Machin in a Grade 2 event at Leopardstown in February (Redemption Day and the unlucky The Yellow Cay behind); has probably slipped in stable's pecking order after mid-field finish at Cheltenham.

Defied market weakness to win by 11l on debut and probably wasn't seen to best effect around Galway when following up by 2l; booked his ticket here with a much improved display at Leopardstown's February festival when best of the rest behind Jeroboam Machin, who was favourite for this until ruled out through injury; that was his first run on soft ground and the race didn't go entirely to plan, yet the bare form (through the third) still puts him on a par with Jalon D'oudairies; now hooded; major player.

Easy to back on debut at Kilbeggan last May when he travelled strongly and pulled well clear of Croke Park, a Grade 3 winner over hurdles this season; deputised for his high-class stablemate Aurora Vega (in season) when landing the odds at the Galway festival.
