T: Syd Hosie

Largely consistent during his summer/autumn spell with Milton Harris, winning twice (2m/2m1f, good/good to soft); not written off but he was pulled up on last month's stable debut at Kempton (2m, good to soft).

Hit the ground running for this yard with two wins in July (good/good to soft) and after a blip he's been back in good form the last twice; no reason why he shouldn't be in the thick of things.

Form & Verdict

Knocking on the door with three consecutive seconds this term before pulling up on testing ground at Limerick over Christmas; freshened up since then and could deliver another bold bid but difficult to know if she has any secrets from the handicapper.
