Form & Verdict

Navan maiden winner over this trip last season was a fine second to an older horse in a Leopardstown Listed race on return; hasn't built on that since, though probably didn't handle the track at Galway last time; a chance if back to his best.

Wide-margin Navan maiden winner last year before contesting the Vertem Futurity; neck second on seasonal debut in 1m1f Listed at Leopardstown; looked a bit one-paced over 1m on his next start and found 7f inadequate in a Group 2 event at Leopardstown last week; interesting on handicap debut, but no horse of his age has won this since 2004.
