Form & Verdict

Kingman half-brother to three winners, including Listed scorer Joie De Soir; dam unraced daughter of 1m2f Group 1 winner; blinkered, stable second-choice on Naas debut in October, slow to break and green but showing definite promise when staying-on third over 1m; sure to appreciate this step up in trip and likely major contender in what looks an ordinary maiden for the venue.
