Form & Verdict

Limited impact between 1m and 1m4f on first four starts but transformed by a drop to sprinting when scoring with something to spare at Chelmsford (6f) last Saturday; hard to beat if in similar form, particularly with most of his 6lb penalty offset by Rhys Clutterbuck's claim.

Maiden after 21 starts and has become disappointing; some of his better runs this year have come here but he was only sixth of eight over 1m last week; remains to be seen if a drop back in trip improves matters.
