Form & Verdict

Dual 1m winner for Lydia Pearce in the summer of 2019 and was returning from 826 days off when third of ten at Wolverhampton (9.5f, Tapeta) in January; didn't build on it when seventh of eight at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) 17 days later and has something to prove all of a sudden, not least stamina.

Now a five-time winner, having followed up his 9.4f success here with a length win at Chelmsford (1m; under Grace McEntee); up another 3lb and down in distance, but he's reliable and he'll get a good pace to chase back at 7f.

Ran well to finish fourth of 13 on his return from 214 days off (and first start since being gelded) at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) in January, but was a bit disappointing back there next time; 1lb lower than when winning at Southwell (1m4f, Fibresand) last April and with no doubts over his stamina he has to make the shortlist.
