Form & Verdict
Good horse from a very capable yard and heading for the Ascot Stakes over a mile further; dropping back from 2m AW win and the ground will suit; market will guide but maybe they'd like to go up a few pounds to make sure of his place in the line-up next month (mark of 92 got in last year).

9st 8lb

J: Dylan Browne McMonagle

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Lightly raced 6yo who easily made all at Dundalk (2m, AW) last December and did likewise at Leopardstown (1m4f, good) last month on final run for Barry Fitzgerald (has changed hands since); unraced on fast ground; repeating those tactics from his wide draw might be tricky on stable debut, but he's clearly thriving and it remains to be seen where his limitations lie.
