Very promising effort on debut at Down Royal last month; early faller last time at Thurles earlier this month; has his share of ability but might find one or two too good here.

Shaped nicely on Down Royal debut last month when a 25-1 shot, bit novicey in jumping but keeping on well when fourth to a winner in the same ownership; should have learnt plenty from that but this possibly a stronger maiden.
