Form & Verdict

A revelation since handicapping this month, making all at Huntington and at Exeter last week, over similar trips, and both under Freddie Procter; penalty to carry but still looks ahead of the handicapper.

Back to form with neck second of five in novice handicap chase at Kempton (2m2f, good to soft) last month; also effective over 2m4f and on soft ground; there's a suspicion that latest performance (when he lost a shoe) represents strong form and this 7yo novice could be in the mix once more.

Better could have been expected in Grade 2 here (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; however, there was promise in his first two chase starts at Wincanton (1m7f, soft; in front when unseating two out) and here (2m, good to soft; third of four in Grade 2), and he remains of interest now back in a handicap.
