Progressive in tongue tie on good (to soft), narrow Goodwood maiden win before giving the favourite a race in Round Tower (sweating, led); in theory should be better suited by this track from gate 1 and win; ground the imponderable (on pedigree and form).

11-2, lots of early speed when sixth at Naas (6f, good); this track should suit his style and he's probably got a decent draw; now tongue tied.

Left her debut behind with a fillies' maiden success at Naas in August but couldn't land a blow at Listed level when last seen in September; suspicion she'll need this after 235 days off.

Both runs at 5f on slower ground; blew the start and ran green when clear second at Tipperary behind a subsequent Listed winner, before overcoming another slow start at Naas, where he was extending his lead at the finish; the Naas runner-up could finish only fourth in another maiden last weekend but this imposing colt could improve any amount for stepping up to 7f (dam's side of the pedigree casts no doubts).
