He underwent a gelding operation after four very moderate efforts and it did the trick as he won the first nursery of the season at the Curragh last month.

Trust Your Opinion showed good pace for a long way at Navan but still has plenty to do with top weight while Lady Mandeville has been inconsistent and ran poorly at Naas last time and the remainder have struggled in maidens.
