Gelded after Curragh run and subsequently ran a bit below par in a Killarney nursery after his 55-day absence; back on song when second at Down Royal (7f) latest, rising 5lb in the ratings in the process to a mark which leaves him favourably treated here if he runs to it; visor replaces the blinkers; plenty to bring to the table.

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.

Best form over a shorter trip but worth another go at it; bit to find on the books as well, but rider's claim helps bridge the gap a bit and cheekpieces a first; no forlorn hope but she does have a few questions to answer.

Behind Vangelis (gave 10lb) on debut at Down Royal; looked a surefire future winner when second at Bellewstown (1m) on second start, shade hit and miss in three subsequent outings with Navan fourth in a similar contest to today's respectable; should hold her own.
