Loves the mud and improved form over a mile lately, winning at Bellewstown and clear of remainder when second at the Curragh; slow to break and never nearer than at finish over 7f at Gowran six days ago; wide draw may not be such a negative and one to consider.

Grand sort but often gives them a head start and modest strike-rate over last two years; never counted after another tardy start at the Curragh on latest; never one to rule out but hard to have confidence in all the same.

Ten-race maiden but was first past the post at Killarney over the summer before a demotion for interference; good run back from a short break on testing ground at Listowel in a race which is working out well; 2lb higher but definite chance and drop back in trip should suit.
