impressively at S'mour on debut but two runs since have
only been fair. Stable normally have success when their
horses make the border switch but place is preferred.

received the run of the race and found a couple too strong

dera (IR) - Gallic Fun). Caught three wide on the
speed throughout and battled on well enough under the

held up. Rate highly.

tum - Vetorisc). Sent around at triple figure odds and
was never a winning chance on debut 8½ len 10th (54.0)
