Form & Verdict

Can be considered a little unlucky not to have won this season, collared on the line over C&D (soft) in January having looked well in control until a mistake at the second last; seemingly going well when falling four out back here (3m) since; jumping has to be slight concern but there's little doubt he's capable of winning off this mark.

Lightly raced 7yo; better effort over fences when a close second of four over 2m4f (soft) here just before Christmas; his jumping was sound and today's drop back to 2m should not inconvenience him; open to further improvement and high on the list.

Keeping excellent form under the 7lb claimer Conor Rabbitt over 3m at Perth (131) this spring, climbing a further 4lb since making all in a three-runner Class 4 there a fortnight ago; gave a good account (second) here too last spring, so everything looks primed for another positive performance.
