Not a great strike rate but likes it soft and excellent run in Curragh premier handicap on Saturday, only tiring late under positive ride; big player if reproducing that level of form.

Gained two heavy-ground wins late last season and form so far this term just okay; fair bit to find although handicapper relenting.

Won back-to-back over 6f on AW this winter; no turf wins since 2021 but operating from his lower turf mark here; below form at Lingfield (AW) when last seen and percentage call is to look elsewhere.

Fine servant for this yard, winning four handicaps at Dundalk and also twice successful on the beach at Laytown; finished behind Daamberdiplomat at Dundalk five weeks ago; should run his race but perhaps vulnerable in this field.

Form & Verdict

5f specialist had great time for Leanne Breen in 2021 with three wins on good ground including a big pot at the Curragh; very lightly raced in recent years however and recent Laytown run behind several of today's rivals none too encouraging; new headgear combination tried.

Tactically versatile sprinter with fair strike-rate, latest of six wins came over 5f at Tipperary last month (soft); bit to find with Dream Today on recent Laytown run (slowly away) but return to 5f and soft ground should suit.
