Form & Verdict
Third reserve; down to interesting handicap territory and some decent runs lately but concern is that he's winless since October 2018; wide draw.

Gained a first win since his juvenile days in a Bellewstown handicap in September and hasn't been beaten far in either subsequent start including C&D two weeks ago; has a much better draw this time and he's on a fair mark.

Gained first win since his 2yo campaign at Bellewstown last month and a good run in defeat at Thurles since; needs more to defy this mark and widest draw is far from ideal.
