Respectable third last week at Naas (7f, soft to heavy) when just behind Finsceal Go Deo and ahead of a below-par Quantum Light; open to greater improvement than that pair after only three starts.

Was having only fourth start when landing 1m1f maiden at Leopardstown last October, seeing it out well in testing conditions; closely matched with Duke Of Leggagh on evidence of a Leopardstown clash 13 days ago; less exposed than that rival and makes considerable appeal.

Lightly raced filly was having only fourth start when landing 1m1f maiden here in October, seeing it out well in testing conditions; likely has more to offer now entering handicaps off a fair mark.

0-6; hasn't been too far away in most of his races and the drop back to 7f perhaps not ideal at the Curragh last week (sixth of 20 when favourite); has races in him off this mark but best form to date has been at 1m.
