Minor promise in maidens but struggled when last of six on handicap debut in June and still seems on a tough mark; might want a return to more testing conditions.

Has failed to build on initial promise in maidens (now 0-10) and has become very hit and miss; likely to have one of these in him, but predicting the day a whole different story; risky.

Form & Verdict
Gained a third win of the campaign over C&D on penultimate start of last season and probably unsuited by a step up in trip when last seen; return to this distance should help but vulnerable to well handicapped sorts.

Came down the handicap through the summer and made a winning return to AW over C&D in October; hasn't managed to really build on that in seven subsequent runs here this winter and he might need a bit more relief from the assessor; return to 1m might help.
