19:50 Leopardstown Thu 18 July 2019
Multiple winner on turf in Germany including in a 1m Group 2 in May last year. Well held in two starts in Australia earlier this season however and cheekpieces are tried for the first time on debut for yard who won this race in both 2017 and 2018.
Returning from a break when beaten ½L into third in a 1m Listed race at The Curragh (good) last time out. Improvement likely and is one to note in this contest.
Sole success so far came in a 7f maiden at Tipperary (soft-to-heavy) in September last year. Well held in three starts since joining this stable.
Fair 5L sixth of seven in a 1m2f Group 3 at The Curragh (good) in first time cheekpieces (absent here) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares dropping slightly in trip.
Placed in a Listed race over an extended 1m2f at Chester (good-to-soft) in May and has been outclassed in Group 1 company twice subsequently. Interesting contender dropping in grade.
Impressive 11L winner of a small field 1m contest at Navan (good-to-yielding) last time out. Well beaten in a 1m2f Group 3 at The Curragh (good-to-firm) prior to that however.
Improved on debut effort when winning impressively over an extended 1m1f at Gowran Park (good) early last month. Interesting runner taking a marked step up in grade.
