Form & Verdict

Big improver in February with two easy wins in handicaps (2m1f/2m, soft) but his progress stalled in final two runs last season and he was tailed off at Carlisle on his return last month; still 9lb higher than for last win and has something to prove on this step back up in trip.

Patchy form across his four runs this season but they've all been on soft going and he showed spark when second at Wetherby in January; below par there since but he's had wind surgery subsequently and could be back on better ground today; back down to same mark as for 8l win at Bangor (2m3f, good to soft) last March and this C&D winner is capable of having a big say.

Went close at Musselburgh (2m7f, soft) in January and built on that with comfortable win at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) from Coolmoyne; it was a first victory for this 10yo so there are reservations about him defying a 6lb rise and following up, but if he repeats that latest form he'll be tough to beat.
