Form & Verdict
Had good early season 2yo form and later not beaten far in a stakes race which led to a significant rise in his rating; dropped away tamely on Cork return (heavy) although that seemed to be bad to be true; whether he is worthy of his mark must be open to question all the same.

Started career brightly last season, before limitations were exposed in better company; ran away with a 17-runner 5f maiden at Navan in May, soon in front and always in command; looked unlucky when second to Blue Storm in the three-year-old "Dash" at Epsom; winner upheld the form at Royal Ascot; holds a leading chance

Showed promise on soft to heavy ground last spring but appeared to be treading water until running away with big-field maiden at Navan (5f, good) two weeks ago, soon in front and always in command; clearly has bags of speed and looks a leading candidate on today's handicap debut.
