Won two (5.5f and AW 7f) of his three starts for Joseph O'Brien, the second win coming in February after a 469-day absence; the handicapper has been in command since joining current stable but cheekpieces and a return to AW could give him a lift.

Unexposed 4yo who ran well when third of nine on stable debut at Newcastle 19 days ago (7f, good; behind Master Richard), first outing for 549 days; slightly disconcerting that he hung so sharply to his right from 1f out on that occasion but he still has potential and the return to 1m shouldn't be an issue.
