Form & Verdict
Gelded before this season; bit unlucky on his handicap debut but then made amends at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) and was good value for that (travelled best before running on strongly); big player off just 3lb higher as he's evidently progressing.

Three-time winner who was close up in a 7f handicap here in September; has finished runner-up on too many occasions for comfort and lacking a run is probably not ideal.
