Lightly-raced colt. Below form third of 10 in maiden at Dundalk (6f, 11/10) 30 days ago. His third in the Round Tower at the Curragh in August sets the standard and he should take all the beating.

|09/09/20||Cork||13/15||Flat||6f||Gd/frm||9st 7lbs||N. G. McCullagh||34|

Only a handful of these make any serious appeal, with COULTHARD taken to get his head in front. His third in the Round Tower in August sets the bar pretty high, and he will be tough to beat if anywhere near that level today. Yulong de Legend rates as the main threat having shaped with promise on debut, with newcomers Power Under Me and Hongkong Harmony worth noting too.
