Showed promise when fourth in Limerick maiden in October; well held since including on last month's handicap debut at Leopardstown but now steps up in trip by a mile and there's plenty of stamina in his pedigree; market will reveal plenty.

Improvement at Down Royal lately, touched off over 2m4f and coasted home to win eased-down over 2m6f; it may have been wiser to ride her out because marksman gave her 11lb in any event; bit keen last time and longer trip is a slight concern.
