Form & Verdict

More modest handicap runs than good ones over the last year but he did sterling late work to nearly snatch a 1m3f handicap here 17 days ago (good; acts on good to soft/slower); modest strike-rate is off-putting but he does look to have another race in him; yard won this last year.

Last five wins over hurdles, most recently in April, but he gave it a good shot in an amateur jockeys' race at Musselburgh in July (1m5f, good) and good to firm wouldn't have suited ten days ago (nearly all wins on good to soft or slower); the more rain the better.
