Form & Verdict

Looked a stayer on the up until only eighth at Haydock (2m) 19 days ago but he can be excused that effort given he had too much use made of him; his earlier second at Doncaster reads well so he must enter calculations with cheekpieces refitted.

Largely consistent record (328122) since upped to 1m6f/2m, the win gained at Thirsk (good) last August; neck second at Ripon (soft) on seasonal debut most recently; due to go up 1lb in future; each-way claims.

Began the season with two heavy defeats but he bounced back to form when scoring at Redcar a fortnight ago (1m6f, good to firm; cheekpieces back on); consistency hasn't been his strong suit so no guarantee he'll be in the same form; non-runner at Thirsk yesterday.

Plentiful minor honours before off the mark in six-runner handicap at Catterick (1m6f, soft; unraced on heavy) in April, which he did easily by nearly 8l after leading over 1f out; however, produced a lesser show in May and soundly beaten at York 11 days ago; stays 2m2f but form claims rest on that wide-margin win.

Still to add to his two 2021 wins this season and he unseated his rider early on in 2m4f Goodwood handicap four weeks ago; slipped to a handy mark so needs shortlisting, especially if the market speaks in his favour.
