Form & Verdict
Nicely progressive in heavy-ground maidens but was only sixth of ten when encountering good to yielding ground on his handicap debut at Naas; didn't get the clearest of runs that day but has to prove himself under these quicker conditions and he's been confined to 6f thus far; cheekpieces tried last time are now left off.

All runs over 6f on heavy; touched off first two starts, including over C&D on reappearance, before scraping home at the Curragh last month; wasn't doing a tap in front that day and, if the headgear keeps him focused, is capable of better; yard had one-two in this race three years ago.

Smart 2yo for David O'Meara, winning her first two starts and holding her own in smart company afterwards (including a 3l third in the Queen Mary); not far off her best RPRs in two runs since fetching 180,000gns and this return to fast ground should help her now sent into her first handicap.

Beat all bar an improver on his return at Naas (6f handicap; good to yielding) and a slow start was no help when dropped to 5f for the first time at Tipperary; perhaps vulnerable against one or two of these.

Her maiden win (5f, yielding) has worked out well and after coming up short in Listed company she was bang there in a 5f handicap at Cork (good) after racing prominently off a strong pace; top jockey takes over from a 10lb claimer and has to be of interest.

Two clearcut wins over Dundalk's 6f during the winter and his run in a Naas Group 3 was too bad to be true, for all that he was up against it anyway (33-1); something to prove on turf and over 5f, so others appeal more.

Ex-Irish 3yo who ran creditably in first-time cheekpieces at Wolverhampton last month on second start for new yard, taking form figures over 6f on AW to 2113 and shaping as if this drop back to 5f won't be a problem; still open to further progress in this sphere; shortlisted.

Scored twice at Dundalk (6f, Polytrack) last winter, but held since returning on turf in May including when eighth of ten on stable debut at Chester (7f, good to soft) last month; return to the AW may help and cheekpieces are given a go, but others look more solid.
