Form & Verdict

Won back-to-back on AW at the end of last year; possibly needed his turf return at the Curragh last month, but failed to improve on that at Leopardstown 13 days ago; capable apprentice aboard, but the stable probably has a better chance with Mr King.

Third in 1m Curragh maiden that has worked out generally well, failed on that when fourth of eight over further at Sligo; another indifferent display at Down Royal; return to this trip for handicap debut may have a positive effect.

Form & Verdict

In terrific form at Dundalk between January and April, winning three of his four starts; lost out by 3/4l on his penultimate start but was soon back in winning vein, scoring comfortably off a mark of 69; only two runs on turf in maidens early last season; may continue to improve but the trip is a concern, Dundalk runs have all been over the extended 1m2f.
