Winner last month at Leopardstown and Tipperary last month, just foiled at the latter venue most recently (1m2f, good to firm). Has gone up another 2lb, but likely to be in the mix again back down in trip.
Backed to win Listowel maiden over extended 6f last June but failed to build on that next time in Listed company. Fair effort back from a layoff at Sligo (7f, good to yielding) last month and should come forward for that outing.
Runner-up first two starts before winning three-runner maiden at Navan (1m2f, good to firm) last month. Capable of further progress.
Excelebration colt who is a half-brother to four winners over a variety of distances from 1m to 2m. Improving with his racing, finished second in maiden at the Curragh (1m2f, good to firm) when last spotted in May.
Produced a career-best on turf debut when winning 1m maiden at Gowran in May, but well held in three starts since and has now left Joseph O'Brien for this trainer.
Showed decent form at two and off the mark second time of asking for this yard with career-best when winning nine-runner maiden at Tipperary (7½f, firm) 12 days ago. Potentially will have more to offer.
Struggling for any sort of form this season and finished last of six in a handicap at the Curragh (1m2f, good to firm) 18 days ago. Needs big bounce back.
