Form & Verdict
Did his racing in Ireland over 7f-1m1f, his two summer turf wins coming over 1m, and is having a first crack at sprinting for his new yard; solid effort on tough terms in a claimer last time but obvious concerns over whether he'll have the toe for this.

He has made good progress on AW over the last six months, placed three times on Polytrack before breaking his duck at Chelmsford in January (6f); second at Kempton in March when the winner got first run on him (stayed on well); could well have more to come and he is one of the likelier types back on turf (not beaten far on fast ground (1m) last summer).

Dropped practically on the line by Morgan Cole on each of two 5f Tapeta successes in the past eight days, following up his breakthrough C&D handicap win with a last-gasp denial of Mr Pc at Wolverhampton; penalised and 5lb worse off with that one here, but clearly thriving; case strong again.
