Generally reliable sort won a Group 3 at Leopardstown over this trip last August; has run respectably in defeat since, including on first two starts this season; third to the 10lb-receiving Goldana at Leopardstown, no match for White Birch at this venue; back at a realistic level after ambitious Tattersalls Gold Cup bid.

Won a 7f maiden at this track on debut last August and followed a 1m Group 2 third at Leopardstown with a Group 3 win at the same track; well below his best at Leopardstown on seasonal debut; out of his depth in the Irish 2,000 Guineas.

Won a Curragh maiden over this trip before a solid 3rd in a Group 2 over a mile at this track; got up in the final stride to beat Bright Stripes in a C&D Group 3 in heavy ground on final start last year; handles conditions and he looks a major player.

Half-sister to top-class Australian performer The Autumn Sun; looked potentially smart when scoring over 7f at Leopardstown on only start at two; faded in the closing stages when aimed high in the Irish 1,000 Guineas on her seasonal debut; could be a big factor now with that experience under her belt.

Gelded after a disappointing run on only start at two; different proposition this term, winning a Leopardstown 1m maiden and a 7f Gowran conditions event; showed a tendency to hang left when second in a C&D Listed race; soundly beaten in sixth when tried over 1m2f in the Gallinule Stakes.

Galileo colt; brother of Group 1 winners Churchill and Clemmie; made a bright start to his career with a maiden win over 1m at Dundalk in April; did not seem to stay 1m2f on easy ground here in the Gallinule Stakes; premature to write off.

Galileo brother to four winners including Group 1 winners Churchill (Dewhurst/2,000 Guineas) and Clemmie and Listed scorer Blenheim Palace; dam 5f juvenile winner (including Listed), out of Cheveley Park winner Airwave; superbly-bred debutant and a Ballydoyle second-choice won a Leopardstown maiden on Wednesday so has to be respected.

Form & Verdict

Highly progressive handicapper over the last two seasons; won four of his five starts in 2022 and added two more wins to his record last season; heavy ground was probably an issue when he flopped at Tipperary on his only run in a stakes race; out of the money in a C&D handicap on reappearance; no experience at this level.

Not progressive in maidens following debut third behind stablemate Henry Longfellow here last July; belatedly opened his account in modest company at Gowran 13 days ago; that was his first time on good ground, and it seemed to bring out the best in him.

Has failed to add to a Cork maiden win; has managed two good efforts in Pattern company, second in 1m Group 3 at Leopardstown early last season and same place, beaten only a neck, in this year's Athasi Stakes over 7f here; needs to step on more recent form.
