Only one AW handicap victory to his name but that doesn't tell the story; second off 82 in 'Bold Lad' over C&D two years ago; lightly raced since; showed plenty on yard/seasonal bow at Down Royal in June; poor run since but no surprise should be contend.

Highly tried after winner a Curragh maiden as a 2yo; revived by the switch to AW this winter, winning a 6f handicap at Dundalk in December (solid form) and then an eyecatching third back there five weeks ago (10lb claimer reported after the race that he was keen not to hit the front too soon); unlikely to be seeing too much daylight from stall 2 and James Doyle takes over in the saddle; perhaps not straightforward but he appeals as being better than his mark.
