Career-best when scoring over 5f at Tipperary (good to firm) 11 days ago, lightly-raced and has prospects for doing better if handling the jump back up to 7f now. Up 6lb.
Second of his four runs at Leopardstown (7f, good to firm) in a maiden was promising when third of 14 but disappointed next time at Naas and again well held in 7f soft-ground handicap at Galway this month.
First time tongue-tie combined with step up in trip and softer ground appeared to bring improvement when inched out in 7f Galway Festival handicap recently. Player again on that form.
Dandy Man filly purchased for €11,000 at the sales as a yearling. Definite signs of promise in three maidens, latest over C&D last month good to yielding. Has left Johnny Murtagh for this yard ahead of handicap bow.
