Won a Curragh maiden over a mile on good-ground debut but below that level since on slower surfaces, finishing down the field in a 1m2f heavy-ground handicap here on reappearance; if good ground is the key then he's entitled to show a lot more.

Justify colt who cost $1.1million as a yearling; significant promise in his two runs last season (on sound surfaces) and probably wasn't helped by the heavy ground when second to an unexposed stablemate in a 1m2f maiden here a month ago, yet still finished ahead of Invention; boasts several high-profile entries and this mark could well underestimate his potential.
