Form & Verdict

Well-related sort; two promising runs last autumn, notably when 4l second to a Willie Mullins-trained favourite in a 3m maiden at Listowel; poor form this year until respectable effort on latest, finishing sixth at Limerick after his chance had been harmed by an early mistake; now down 15lb from his initial handicap rating and becoming interesting as a result.
