P2P.ie review: Making his seasonal re-appearance in a strangely run Dromahane maiden where the eventual winner Legal Ok was allowed to extend a distance clear of his rivals, Forgot To Ask quickened up very well when sent in pursuit in the home straight to lead the chasing group home in second position. Notably the fifth and ninth-placed horses in that race, Eviscerating and Cup Of Ambition, have both subsequently won their maidens, with the former having entered the race after finishing second, beaten just a short-head by Minella Till Dawn who has subsequently advertised the form by winning a 15-runner Fairyhouse maiden hurdle for Gordon Elliott and JP McManus.

The son of Ask vindicated that step forward when only going down by half a length on his final outing between the flags at Mainstown in late November. Making almost all of the running, he stuck his head down and battled all the way to the line once challenged. Notably, Warthog who finished behind him in third, has since come out and advertised the form in no uncertain terms by winning a Lingstown maiden by 10 lengths.

By a promising sire, this is a most progressive sort who has finished in front of a number of form horses to date.
