Form & Verdict

No win in his first 17 starts under rules but he got off the mark with an emphatic win on his step up to 2m7f at Taunton (good) last Thursday; up 9lb but he still looks feasibly treated and his confidence should be boosted after that success; respected.

Lightly raced 6yo who made it second time lucky over fences with a clearcut win at Uttoxeter (3m, soft) in February; held in a 9l fourth at Wetherby (3m, heavy) last time but he may have done too much too soon and could kick on again on this step back up in trip; looks interesting for yard that won this in 2019; cheekpieces worn last twice are removed.
