Form & Verdict

Dual AW Flat winner when with Charlie Appleby; was off the track for 707 days but has shown promise since returning for this trainer; ran well when fresh over C&D (good) last August and the form of his Gowran Park run next time entitles him to plenty of respect, if at that level after a break.
