Form & Verdict
Took a while to get off the mark but was suited by the return to 6f when winning a Lingfield classified event, then followed up back in a handicap at Newcastle last week; 5lb penalty here and debatable whether 7f suits as well but clearly flying high, unlike many of his rivals.

Form & Verdict
Successful debut for this yard off reduced mark over C&D before Christmas; no great progress since but found himself with a lot to do here this month when held up from a wide draw (similar chance at the weights to Street Poet); can play more of a part this time.
