9st 13lb

J: Oisin McSweeney

T: Daniel McLoughlin

Left his debut behind to win a Dundalk maiden (6f) in October and wasn't beaten far by Inishmot Prince on AW when last seen (9lb better off at the weights with that rival here); could go well if he's as effective down at the minimum but may need this after a five-month break.

Very lightly raced 3yo; debut promise at Fairyhouse in July and reappeared to win C&D maiden in October in first-time cheekpieces, speed throughout over shorter trip and holding on well despite running green (second a beaten favourite since); scope for further improvement but likely needed here against some seasoned handicappers.
