Form & Verdict

Struggled in novice events last year; posted a bigger effort (fourth over 6f) dropped to classified level at Wolverhampton on reappearance, faring best of those who came from rear; open to further progress in this grade and should certainly win races judged on breeding (related to several winners for this yard); interesting.
