- 1m 3f 198y, Good to Firm (Firm in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Drops back in trip having raced over 1m6f-2m since joining this trainer from Ger Lyons for 32,000 gns in November 2017; his best form in Ireland came with cut, but appears to be adaptable enough in terms of racing surface.
1¾L runner-up to Genetics over C&D last month (4lb better off here) and probably ran as well as could be expected against a couple of improving rivals at Ayr (1m2f, good) latest.
Stayed on well to beat Oasis Fantasy by 1¾L on his first attempt at this 1m4f trip over C&D last month; recommences battle on 4lb worse terms after surprisingly dropping back to 1m2f at Epsom latest (runner-up).
No win since May 2017 (1m), and has the hood applied on his first attempt at this 1m4f trip; should stay given the quick ground, but others are more convincing.
Hit the headlines last week when recording an eighth course success (1m2f); turned out sharply back up in trip under a 6lb penalty (possible that runner-up Topmeup can frank that form earlier); always impossible to ignore at this track.
