Form & Verdict

Half-brother to Irish Derby winner Santiago; won a five-runner maiden on soft ground first time out at Galway; did not get much time to recover from that race and did well in the circumstances to finish third of sixth behind Deepone in the Beresford Stakes at the Curragh only 11 days later.

Started slowly and ran green before picking up in the closing stages to finish third at Roscommon in August; showed the benefit of that experience when winning a novice event at Salisbury on good-to-firm last month.

Form & Verdict

Looked promising in recording a pair of good-ground wins over 7f/7.5f in June/July; looked out of his depth when fourth of five behind Henry Longfellow in Group 2 Futurity Stakes at the Curragh; soft ground is a concern on the evidence of tame Listowel run.
