Much improved to score on handicap debut at Cork 10 days ago, handling good ground well when getting up late over 1m2f; good chance he'll improve again for this step up in trip and has to be respected off 4lb higher.

Off the mark on turf debut over this trip in Cork handicap last month but never got to front-running Dont Do Dramas over 1m2f at Sligo off 9lb higher; return to this trip to suit and should get a lot closer here.

Well beaten in three Dundalk maidens but much improved (longer trip, soft ground) on switch to turf in 1m4f Cork handicap 11 days ago, keen but seeing it out well under claiming rider; Keane now takes over off 9lb higher mark and drop in trip should be no problem.

Made all to win a heavy ground nursery and back to form off just 1lb higher mark to land 1m2f Sligo handicap 15 days ago, again under forcing tactics to beat Solar Drive, seeing it out well with field well strung out; good chance of staying this longer trip although 9lb rise requires a lot more.

Promise in three maidens for Aidan O'Brien up to 7.5f; not so effective twice this term for new yard but recent Gowran claimer third a step in the right direction; probably still has a bit to do off this mark.
