Winner on good ground but produced his best performance on soft when bolting up in first-time cheekpieces over 1m2f at Navan last month; steps up in trip here and developing into a high-class performer; should go well with the stable in fine form.

Showed a good attitude to land a 1m4f Fairyhouse maiden in June; stayed on well when just behind stablemate Etna Rosso in the Queen's Vase; looks more of a dour stayer than many of his rivals here; others preferred; cheekpieces tried.

Behind three of these when last of six in Navan Listed race (1m5f, soft) last month but was beaten about only 2l on that second start and his strong finish in that slowly run race suggests his performance can be marked up; game win in Fairyhouse maiden (1m4f, good) 12 days ago and this unexposed colt could be about to take a big step forward; one of three for yard.

One of three for Joseph O'Brien; Dylan Browne McMonagle has ridden on both starts; won on debut at Limerick (1m3f, soft) in April and close second to Peking Opera in Listed race at Navan (1m5f, soft) latest; having raced just twice, he could have lots more to offer and is one to be interested in.

Striking winner of a 1m5f maiden here in June and followed up even more impressively in a winners' race last month; looks a very exciting young stayer and this will give us a much better idea of his capabilities.

Form & Verdict

Impressive winner of a Galway maiden on his sole start last season; was thought of by many as a Derby contender over the winter but disappointed in the Ballysax Stakes on his sole start here in April; steps up in trip and has an entry in both St Legers; a very interesting runner here.

Won his sole 2yo start and finished third when odds-on for a key Derby trial first time out this season; not a bad run behind the smart Harbour Wind when returning from a break in August before finding the St Leger too tough a test; not yet exposed and has to be of interest on his handicap debut.

By 2012 St Leger runner-up Camelot out of half-sister to 2018 St Leger winner Kew Gardens; impressive in a Galway maiden (8.5f, soft) as 2yo; starting 4-5 for Group 3 Ballysax at Leopardstown (1m2f, heavy) in April suggested he was considered a major Derby contender, which he failed to live up to in the race, however, and he showed similar form when sixth of seven in 1m6f Listed event in August when next seen; unexposed and capable of better (checked over 1f out last time, trying to come from last) but no form claims.
