Form & Verdict
His win for Richard Hannon came over about 1m and he ran his most encouraging race for his new stable when dropped back to that trip at Windsor (good to firm) last month, keeping on for fourth having had to switch for a run; much respected for trainer/jockey pairing which won this race in 2019.
