Form & Verdict

Late-maturing 5yo ended last season with Joanna Morgan on a high note when winning over this trip at the Curragh and reappeared there last month when bolting up over 6f on heavy; hit with 14lb hike for that but no surprise if he is up to the task; hood added to tongue tie here.

Two readily-achieved wins on heavy ground at this venue (6f/7f) for which he's risen sharply in the ratings; second over 7f at Leopardstown last time and hood tried then is left off here; likely there's still more to come.

Likes an ease, winning on heavy and fine comeback second on similar ground at the Curragh last month under today's rider; not as good here on Sunday under more inexperienced claimer but not one to rule out.

Won two soft-ground nurseries over shorter for Johnny Murtagh but was never that threatening in four British runs for Michael Bell and was picked up for only 4,000gns in November; ran okay on stable debut at Leopardstown (7f, heavy) but not well enough to get the vote here.
