Plenty of experience at two, notably final start when strong-finishing third in very valuable Naas sales event on soft (7f); good second on seasonal return over same trip in Madrid Handicap at Naas (with My Mate Alfie and Military behind), maintained progression with 5f rated race win at the Curragh.
