Form & Verdict

Ties in closely with the less exposed Donya on C&D form 25 days ago; often runs creditably but has a poor strike-rate (sole win came in 2019) and the addition of cheekpieces needs to eke out more from him.

Absent since winning at Lingfield (2m AW, Class 6) in April 2022; the handicapper has given him a chance from an unchanged mark, with the combination of a tongue-tie and cheekpieces seemingly aiding his earlier progress; fitness to prove though off a 544-day absence.

Record of 5-13 on Polytrack, including two 1m4f classified wins this year; on a workable mark back at handicap level (won off 2lb higher in 2020); likely player provided he's as effective back on Tapeta (well held over 1m6f on sole attempt).
