Form & Verdict
Very useful form in five starts in France at two including when fourth in a 7f Group 3 event at Longchamp in early September; a shade disappointing at 6f on next start before signing off with fifth behind the Joseph O'Brien-trained Islandsinthestream in a valuable 1m conditions event at Longchamp; notable recruit but this trip may be shorter than ideal.

Excellent effort when second behind a Ballydoyle-trained colt in a 20-runner maiden over C&D on only start at two; similar ground to now, and third-placed stablemate Shandy has boosted the form this term, beating Betsen over 5f at Cork.
