Made up some eyecatching ground before flattening out late on when fifth of 12 in a 1m heavy-ground maiden at Leopardstown in October; entered in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and there's surely more to come from her.

Beat subsequent winner when landing Gowran maiden over 9.5f (soft) on reappearance; beaten under 4l in both slowly-run Leopardstown Group 3 over 1m and fillies' handicap over same trip at the Curragh; stepping back up in trip should help and headgear goes on.

Form & Verdict
Cost 50,000 euros as a yearling and more than three times that as a 2yo; at 10-1 for a 1m1f Curragh maiden (soft), he was doing all his best work late when runner-up to the smart Illinois who next time finished close up in a French Group 1; brings plenty of potential into his second campaign and an Irish Derby entry bodes well.

Irish Derby entrant ran a cracker when runner-up in a 1m1f Curragh maiden in October; backward step when beaten at odds of 1-4 in a Gowran maiden last month; cheekpieces tried and the step up in trip should suit; question to answer though.
