Form & Verdict
Best effort in three starts for Joseph O'Brien last year when third of 13 in a Thurles maiden (1m, soft; first-time cheekpieces, now removed) on his final outing; changed hands for 21,000gns soon afterwards and makes his debut for his new yard (won this race two years ago) after 197 days off having been gelded in the meantime; interesting.

Late foal; left Joseph O'Brien for 21,000gns in October; well backed when winning a Bath maiden (1m, good) in April but that was by a nose and he was only sixth of seven on handicap debut at Nottingham last month; looks well worth a go at this new trip but he needs marked improvement to get back on the scoresheet; withdrawn due to fast ground at Haydock last week.
