0-7 on the Flat for Noel Meade but showed plenty of promise and rated 73 (10lb above Meade's runner Katonah); made a satisfactory start over hurdles when chasing home shorter-priced stablemate Pacini at Fairyhouse; has an edge over Superbolt and is open to improvement.

Achieved a fair level of form on the Flat when winning a Ballinrobe maiden and showed up well for a long way before fading on hurdle debut last month; could do with settling better but expect her to come on for that run.

Lightly raced on the Flat and showed useful form in winning a 1m1f maiden on good ground; settled better on her second hurdle run and duly improved to make the frame behind a stablemate of Wodhooh in a Fairyhouse maiden (heavy); these conditions might well see her in a better light and Joseph O'Brien won the penultimate renewal of this race.

Had one Flat run; the standout of three hurdle runs was his fourth in a Fairyhouse maiden (2m, heavy) when close up behind Green Sky who made the frame in a Listed race at Doncaster last weekend; tailed off either side of that but he has to be of interest now handicapping, especially as he's unexposed on this ground and is now in a tongue-tie; shortlisted.

10-race maiden on the Flat in Britain but went close with a career best at Redcar when last seen over 1m2f; should stay further and he's an interesting recruit but possibly more of a long-term prospect.
