1m 2yo maiden winner on soft; her third at Listed level first time back was a career best and probably found the ground too fast when last seen in a handicap at Royal Ascot; has the form to feature if returning in good nick.

Improved from a first outing at Naas when second to an Aidan O'Brien-trained filly at Cork; confirmed promise when making most in 1m Thurles maiden with Drummin Life in third; didn't see out this trip on heavy ground at Navan two weeks ago after trying to make all and finished third to lesser-fancied stablemate but conditions are unlikely to be as demanding this time.

Definite player on the strength of his defeat of Alfred Munnings (also second to Self Belief) in the Group 3 Desmond Stakes and he raced keenly off a steady pace when fourth in a Group 2 back at Leopardstown; this race should be a better fit and he's the highest rated of these.
