The County Waterford trainer is looking forward to the 11-year-old meeting talented younger opposition in the Grade One feature over two miles and one furlong.

"He's in mad form. I couldn't believe it the other day. The boys were having trouble holding him," de Bromhead told At The Races.

"He's in some form and I'm really looking forward to Christmas with him.

"You just wouldn't believe he was 11 when you saw him at home - he's like a two-year-old. I'm looking forward to taking on some of these younger guys and seeing how the pensioner gets on against them."
