Form & Verdict
Approaching the veteran stage and has a strike rate of 6-64, placed 14 times; comes into the reckoning on the basis of C&D third in April and a recent Gowran second that gives him the beating of stablemate Exquisite Acclaim.

Busy campaign but clearly thriving, winning last two starts within six days on soft/heavy, at Gowran and when just holding on over this trip at Roscommon under mandatory 7lb penalty; off 7lb higher mark here so needs to take another leap forward.

Goes well on soft/heavy, recording recent wins at both Galway and Listowel festivals; not at that level however off revised mark at Killarney; conditions in his favour again and rider's 10lb claim brings him into the mix.
