Form & Verdict

Respectable fourth at Ffos Las (2m) with reappearance under his belt and may be at concert pitch today; however, he's possibly best at shorter trips (yet to win beyond 2m2f) and weakened into a well-held second behind Rizzardo in this contest in 2020.

Opened his account with a 13l success at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) eight days ago when back from a ten-week break and having only his third attempt over fences; open to further progress in this sphere and commands respect under 7lb penalty; future mark 4lb higher.

Form & Verdict

Far from solid on this season's form and his apparent sign of revival two starts ago was not backed up last time; however, he's a dual C&D winner off 10lb higher (on good ground) and has a big chance if back on song.
