Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten at big odds on all three starts over hurdles; makes the switch to handicapping at a realistic level, but difficult to say definitively whether or not she's feasibly weighted; safer options elsewhere.

Absent since tailing off in C&D maiden last March; however, he was a fairly encouraging third over C&D (soft) the time before and, with his trainer enjoying a fantastic season, it'll be no surprise to see a big run from this very lightly raced 7yo on his handicap debut.
