Off the mark last March (1m4f, good) at fifth attempt on Flat in France; won by a street at 2-5 on debut for new yard at Punchestown (2m, heavy) on New Year's Eve; that made him favourite for Grade 1 at Leopardstown (2m, soft) six weeks ago and, having been outpaced by Kargese after two out, he edged closer to go down by just over 1l; that puts him in serious calculations.
