Form & Verdict

Has a patchy record under both codes but he won on the Flat at Brighton (1m4f) in October and ended last year with a 2l second in a C&D handicap (good to soft); that was behind Hey Bob but he finished well from a long way back and this course winner remains feasibly treated off 3lb higher here; respected.
