Form & Verdict

Best run in three starts this year when, back down in trip and with cheekpieces refitted, he was a fair third over 2m4f here (good) last week; only win in 22 starts over fences came over 2m3f and has a bit to prove at this shorter trip; 17lb lower than his winning mark, though, so has to be of interest.

Some encouragement can be drawn from a fair Carlisle fourth (2m5f; off a 9lb higher mark) during the spring of 2021, but equally you'd need to be prepared to ignore a pair of lacklustre recent efforts; cheekpieces are added.
