Won a Naas maiden over a mile last October on his second start, in similar ground to this; made a respectable seasonal debut over the same C&D two weeks ago but will have to improve on that to score here.

Promise on his debut here in September before following up on similar ground to today over C&D the following month; plenty of potential and today's effort will give us a much better idea of his capabilities.

Made debut at the Curragh last October and showed promise when sixth of 17 over 7f; gelded and hood fitted, won well on reappearance in 1m Cork maiden; ground was testing then, but better going should not be a problem.

Debut promise last summer at Gowran, then flopped on heavy at Galway; absent until landing odds in Dundalk maiden early last month, having to battle over 7f; failed to find much after a prominent run in a C&D handicap last time; probably capable of better on good ground.

Debut promise last summer at Gowran then flopped on heavy at Galway and absent until landing odds in Dundalk maiden early this month, having to battle over 7f; good chance he'll improve for this step up in trip and could prove to be on a lenient enough initial mark.

Backed up promising Leopardstown debut third with better form in finishing fifth of 23 in 7f Goffs Million, staying on well at the finish; still looked a bit raw when winning a Dundalk maiden in October but should make a useful colt this season.

Improved from his return in a 7f handicap at this venue to win over 5f at the Curragh; can be forgiven his run at Listed level just over three weeks ago; seems best on soft and heavy, and is not guaranteed to stay 1m as well as some of these rivals.

Plenty of experience at two, notably final start when strong-finishing third in very valuable Naas sales event on soft (7f); good second on seasonal return over same trip in Madrid Handicap at Naas (with My Mate Alfie and Military behind), maintained progression with 5f rated race win at the Curragh.
