Form & Verdict

Won twice in these colours when trained by Roger Varian, showing very useful form at up to 1m4f; had wind surgery prior to hurdling debut and in a first-time tongue-tie he went down narrowly at Leicester to another smart recruit off the Flat (good to soft; held up); one of the standout contenders here.
