Plenty to like about his first visit to Navan (6f, good to yielding) when third to a smart one from Ballydoyle but was beaten further on his return when sent off favourite; strong chance if repeating that initial effort.

Ardad colt cost 17,000gns as a foal and 50,000Euros as a yearling; half-brother to five winners inc Sweet Fortune (8.6f-1m7f inc AW/France), Anejo (French 1m4f AW) and Orso (Italian 7f 2yo); dam 12.6f Flat (RPR 80) and 2m-2m4f hurdle winner; yard's juveniles tend to need a run so watching brief probably advised.

10-1 for Navan debut over a bit further when yard second-string, outpaced when it mattered before keeping on up the hill; related to speedy types but didn't look a 5f horse the first day and Keane looks elsewhere.
