Well held on both starts so far and probably best watched having been beaten 13½L at Fairyhouse (7f, good-to-firm) last time out.
Shaped as if he need of the experience when well beaten on debut at Naas (7f, good-to-firm) a month ago. Others make more appeal.
Unraced gelded son of Camelot bought for €110,000 at the sales as a yearling. Half-brother to a number of classy performers and one to note on debut.
Placed on three of his four starts so far most recently in a 7f contest at Fairyhouse (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Likely to prove hard to beat.
Fair fourth beaten 3L when debut in a 1m3f maiden at Killarney (good) on debut earlier this week. Dropping markedly in distance.
Caught the eye in finishing fifth of 16 at The Curragh (7f, yielding-to-soft) on his sole start at two. Improvement likely and one for the shortlist on seasonal debut.
Placed in a Tipperary maiden over an extended 7f on debut last month. Well held subsequently however and others hold stronger claims.
Well beaten sixth in a maiden at Naas (7f, good-to-firm) when debuting last month. Probably best watched at present.
