French import, failed to sparkle in two autumn starts for this handler but much more like it when fending off Mustajeer in determined style to win Group 3 at Naas (1m6f, yielding) on reappearance (Capri fifth), but different terms now.
Reliable if unspectacular sort, 1¾L fourth of nine behind Master of Reality in Group 3 Vintage Crop Stakes at Naas (1m6f, yielding) on reappearance. Probably struggles to turn it around/match result.
2017 St Leger winner, no match for Master Of Reality on reappearance at Naas (1m6f, yielding) 19 days ago having gone off 5-4f. Wasn't given a hard time but has more than 6L to find with game winner. Respected and 6lb better off with winner.
Galileo colt, won first two starts last year and credible third in 2m Naas Group 3 on final start. Full of promise and should give these more experienced rivals a race.
Popular veteran, Won Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot last summer (2m5½f, good to firm; 11-2), though well caught for toe next time in Curragh Group 3 over this sort of trip. A surprise should he land this on reappearance.
Finished down the field as an unfancied 66-1 chance in a bumper at Punchestown on debut 13 days ago. Unlikely to lay a hoof on these classy rivals.
