Form & Verdict
Often makes the running, but was held up when a staying-on fourth of ten here (7f) last time; losing run stands at 18 and only one of his six wins has come over 1m, but he is 2-2 in Class 6 handicaps and drops to this level for the first time since August 2020; respected.

Made a successful debut for David O'Meara at Newcastle (1m Tapeta) in December and not disgraced in three subsequent starts, including when third of nine over 7f back there last time (first two have won since); makes his debut for another new yard having changed hands for 12,500gns in February; worth monitoring in the market.

Winning debut for David O'Meara on AW (1m) and also went close on first start for this one on Tapeta in March; well held in turf handicaps in Ireland but they were all on testing surfaces so may yet do better on grass.
