Form & Verdict
Soft-ground bumper winner who looked better for wind surgery when chasing home a potentially smart filly at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) and heavy ground was put forward as an excuse for his quiet handicap debut at Plumpton, for which he was one of the market leaders; can be given another chance.

Lightly raced bumper winner who got bogged down in heavy ground on his handicap debut at Plumpton last month but left that behind when winning by 3l at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) last time; 5lb higher in a better race today but he's unexposed and open to further improvement.

Won on stable debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) in November and, having had a wind op, he returned to form when fourth at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; it's possible the first-time cheekpieces will eke out something extra and he's not ruled out.
