Form & Verdict
Point-to-point winner (yielding) made highly encouraging Rules debut when runner-up in Navan bumper in March (heavy) but didn't quite reproduce that form when fourth (third has won since) at Clonmel last month, fading final furlong; better ground may now suit and has to be respected.

Brother to Presenting Percy was promising third in Naas maiden on debut and runner-up in Downpatrick bumper penultimate start; odds-on when fourth in Down Royal maiden last month but allowances have to be made after saddle slipped and jockey lost irons; this looks the weakest race he has contested and won't get a better opportunity.

Brother to Presenting Percy was promising third in Naas maiden on debut and runner-up in Downpatrick bumper penultimate start; odds-on when fourth in Down Royal maiden last month (Master Splinter second) but allowances have to be made for his jockey having to ride without irons in the straight; step up in trip should suit.
