Well beaten when 66-1 for nursery debut at Ffos Las (6f, soft) in late July; sports first-time cheekpieces here and today's trip-and-surface combination may show him in a better light, but it still takes a leap of faith to support him.

Easy win on debut at the Curragh (7f, good) in August and made it 2-2 in the Group 2 Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown (1m, good) last month; further improvement is needed today but this close relation to classy stablemates Broome and Point Lonsdale could be on a path to a stellar career for a trainer who has won this 11 times, including four of the last six.
