Form & Verdict

Pulled up on seasonal/stable debut in October but gained easy C&D wins on next three starts (good to soft-soft); raised 37lb in total for those exploits and is upped from Class 5 company today but he set a new course record last time and it's hard to tell when his improvement will end.
