Has just under 2l to find with stablemate Chantilly on Killarney form but that was his debut and this 800,000gns Frankel colt could improve any amount on that initial effort.

Third runner for yard; got off the mark on second start when taking a 1m maiden at Gowran in heavy ground; the third home was an impressive Curragh maiden winner since; has to find improvement but can run respectably if doing so.

Fifth foal; brother to two useful middle-distance winners Modus Operandi (Irish 1m2f turf/US 1m4f AW, RPR 104) and Spectacular Style (1m4f; 90); dam stakes-placed 1m2f/1m4f winner (92), half-sister to 2,000 Guineas/King George winner Golan; by the mighty Frankel and cost 800,000gns as a yearling; seems powerful yard's first-string and highly respected.
