Form & Verdict
Won a Windsor maiden (1m, soft) last June; way down the weights, easily his closest finish this term when about 2l third at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) last time, albeit in a five-runner race; case can be made.

Form & Verdict
0-15 on Flat turf (has won on AW and over hurdles); his five runs (four over hurdles) from last July to this April were all heavy defeats, which is a stumbling block even though he's competitive if judged on earlier 2021 form.
