Form & Verdict

Making good progress for Stuart Williams, winning over C&D and at Kempton in the autumn and taking his form to the next level with a smooth win at Kempton last month (7f; well backed); up 5lb but rider takes off a handy 7lb and it is very unlikely he's reached his ceiling just yet; obvious contender.

Both wins have come over 5f but he recorded his highest RPR when second over C&D in November; edging back down the weights and a tongue-tie now joins the cheekpieces; might find others seeing this out better.

Four course wins last season and he continued on his upward curve when getting the better of Shamshon (runs in the 5.00) at Lingfield 20 days ago (5f); more will be needed in this deeper race but conditions certainly won't be his downfall.
