Form & Verdict
AW winner (off 7lb higher) in 2020 for Charlie Fellowes, then failed to hit the target in Ireland; made an encouraging debut for Ivan Furtardo at Wolverhampton (9.4f; well supported) 12 days ago, going down by only a neck; good chance if building on that effort; visor reapplied.

Comes with a health warning as he's often slowly away and needs the cards to drop right; however, has possibilities off last winning mark provided this pans out perfectly; step back up to 1m2f looks a plus, judged on recent 1m evidence.
