Improved from maiden company when hitting the frame on handicap debut and then got off the mark over the extended 1m1f here when last seen; good value for the winning margin but the form of that race doesn't look too strong; open to further improvement on just his sixth career start and 8lb higher mark should be fine; off 177 days.
