6yo who is lightly raced for his age and made it three wins from his last four starts when landing the Irish Lincolnshire at the Curragh (1m, heavy) on Monday; the bounce factor is a worry on this second quick outing after some time off, but he travelled well and found plenty to justify 3-1 favouritism last time, and a 5lb penalty may not stop him this afternoon.

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.
