Last seen on turf finishing down the field in a seven runner maiden at Cork in May 2017. Running largely on the AW at Dundalk since and hard to fancy here.
Career-best when winning a 6f yielding to soft Navan maiden in October but plenty to prove here following being well held in a Listowel contest earlier this month over this trip on handicap debut.
Backed to win Listowel maiden over extended 6f last June but failed to quicken upped in trip to finish down the field in a Tipperary listed contest when last seen in August. Worth a market check on return to the track.
Continued the good run of form for the yard when winning a Listowel maiden over 1m earlier this month on good ground and enters calculations here.
Overall form in three seasonal starts has been largely poor will need to increase general performance to play a role here.
Looked rusty on return to the track finishing 15th of 17 beaten over 8L in a Leopardstown handicap over 1m2f before more disappointment at at Roscommon recently and is hard to fancy on recent evidence.
