Form & Verdict

Joined Donnacha O'Brien after a promising debut for Joe Murphy, finishing well for second over 7f at the Curragh behind Ballydoyle's subsequent Group 2 winner Diego Velazquez; failed to make much impression in mid-field in the Goffs Million, but should be a factor back in maiden company now.

Runner-up in a Curragh maiden for Joe Murphy before beating a couple of Ballydoyle newcomers over this trip at Leopardstown in October; could well be better than what he has shown to date but handles the ground and an interesting runner.
