Best form over 7f at Cork on softish ground; 6f looked inadequate on seasonal/yard debut at Naas; could do better returned to 7f and he's on a dangerous mark.

Goes well on soft/heavy, recording recent wins at both Galway and Listowel festivals; not at that level however off revised mark at Killarney; conditions in his favour again and rider's 10lb claim brings him into the mix.

Clear prospects on his best form but there are several negatives attached to his profile too; beaten favourite on four occasions since a promising debut at the Curragh in May; appears to have lost form, though run was too bad to be true in 6f Curragh maiden in which Nouvel Espoir was third.
