Form & Verdict

Ran very well on his nursery debut in October 2020 (RPR 70) but only seen four times since and he hasn't hit the same heights; too keen over 7f here 12 days ago; tongue-tie enlisted now dropped in trip.

Three-time C&D winner, ridden prominently for those successes, and now 8lb lower than for the latest of them; not hit top gear in three runs for this yard and he'll be 3lb lower from the weekend; still needs a market check with blinkers tried for the first time.

All three wins over C&D in 2022; promising start for new yard after Christmas but he ran no race at Southwell (mixed record there but does handle the surface) ten days ago and now has the hood discarded; on a good mark at present and may well return to form back here.
