Form & Verdict

Has hung in the past so first-time blinkers were probably a significant factor in his breakthrough success at Cork (7f, good) when all out at the line; has the penalty and likely competition for the lead, but respected all the same.

Disappointed in his hat-trick bid at Listowel last time, possibly finding the ground too soft; needs to be equally as effective on AW to land a blow here from career-high mark.

An obvious concern that she's 0-26 but responded well to this change of headgear when a close third behind Rock Dandy last week at Cork (7f, good), coming from off the pace; will need some luck if dropped in from stall 13 but needs considering.
