Last month's Dundalk second represented a fair step up on his two turf efforts, still green but keeping on well from some way off the pace; this longer trip should suit and definite contender.

Seven-race maiden but he showed promise on the Flat in Ireland last year and has finished placed in two hurdle runs (heavy/soft) for new yard this spring; this is a new trip back on the Flat but he still has potential and has shaped like a stayer at times; one to keep an eye on.

Stepped up on his qualifying efforts when third of ten at Bangor on his handicap debut 19 days ago (2m, soft); the first two there were both progressive and the form has a solid look to it; can do better over this extra distance.

Safely held when making the frame in two juvenile hurdles in January (about 44l behind Torneo on latter occasion) and not obviously well treated on this handicap debut but his two promising Flat runs in Ireland last year offer hope he might be capable of better in this sphere.
