Form & Verdict

Has Flat, jumpers' bumper, hurdle and chase wins on the board for Joseph Tuite and although AW is one gap on his CV, he's been runner-up on Polytrack in two of his six AW attempts; below form when he tried cheekpieces on latest chase start (November; second run for new yard) but no shock if he bounces back.

Lightly raced 6yo who justified strong support in a 1m3f maiden here last month; fair fifth of seven on handicap debut over that same C&D 12 days later, which he needs to improve on markedly today; bit to prove over this trip, even though he started his career in three 2m bumpers.
