Shown little in four starts including in first-time blinkers (now removed) on handicap debut here (5f, good to firm) three weeks ago; goes right back up in trip and there is stamina in his pedigree, but best watched unless attracting market support; stable appears to hold much stronger claims with Lochnaver.
