Sole win in nine came in Navan claimer but ran to that form when second in small-field 7f Cork handicap in March on seasonal return; possibly didn't stay at Gowran latest so stamina concerns here.

Only one place and 1.25l behind the fourth Tartaraghan when fifth on debut at Navan and considering he did not have the run of the race on that occasion (dwelt start and checked turing in), no surprise with the experience under his belt if he improves past her; definite shout.

Runner-up in a Roscommon maiden in May on debut; followed that with moderate Leopardstown run; hard to assess since his last two races have been highly ambitious; last of six in a Listed race at Tipperary, last of five in Group 2 Futurity Stakes; may be equal to this task.
