Went up 6lb for winning here earlier this month but that didn't prevent another bold show at the Curragh last week (on soft to heavy); rain won't faze him and he gives his running more often than not.

All three wins at about 5f on turf in France where he seemed to handle Polytrack, although he hasn't run on the surface since early 2021; sold 15,000gns in October; has more to prove than some on Tapeta debut for new yard with regular headgear left off.
