Failed to settle on his recent course visit but improved vastly from reappearance run on that occasion to bag second behind Petit Dejuner (rec 10lb), and with some of the fizz likely to be out of the system by now, and more used to the tongue-tie, he looks to have as good a chance as any; taken seriously.

Big improvement when a runaway winner of a Kilbeggan maiden (2m2f, good to yielding) in June; sets the standard on that form but she's not come close to that level in five runs since and needs a major upturn in form.
