Form & Verdict
Apparently misbehaved on Curragh debut and was gelded afterwards; more professional in flooring a Ballydoyle odds-on chance at Leopardstown (1m, heavy) and did that with a degree of comfort; this drop in trip might not be ideal for one with a good middle-distance pedigree but the testing conditions will help in that respect; hard to know how good he is.

J: Shane Foley

Gelded after a disappointing run on only start at two; different proposition this term, winning a Leopardstown 1m maiden and a 7f Gowran conditions event; showed a tendency to hang left when second in a C&D Listed race; soundly beaten in sixth when tried over 1m2f in the Gallinule Stakes.

Form & Verdict
Defied a market drift to win narrowly on her Tipperary debut (7.5f, soft) before disappointing when seemingly well fancied at 7-2 for a Group 3 at the Curragh; tongue-tie worn for both runs is now missing and she returns with her yard quiet.

Form & Verdict
The ground was testing when making a winning debut over 6f at Naas and she then ran well to be a 6l fourth of 13 in a Group 3 there on good ground; not sure what happened the final time at Roscommon but she's interesting on those initial efforts.

Form & Verdict
Third to a Weld-trained 1-5 chance on Galway debut (7f) before taking a winnable median auction race at Navan (5.5f, yielding to soft); described as a lazy individual by her trainer and the visor is fitted for her reappearance; certainly open to improvement.
