6 yo Gelding

OR: 84

Form & Verdict
Placed a few times in handicaps but it was his first success when winning by a couple of lengths over C&D (good) two weeks ago, having led three out; this new headgear worked a treat (was well backed) and a 5lb rise should be manageable.

Last three runs have been here and showed improved form for this headgear; couldn't bring up the hat-trick when behind Little Jessture and he's now 2lb higher, so it could be that the handicapper now has his measure.

Competitive off this mark in handicaps in the past and it can only have done him good to get his head in front in a 2m3f good-ground maiden at Warwick; it's not strong form and the time was slow, but he has claims here.
