Form & Verdict

Won a Newcastle maiden (7f) last September; hadn't offered much this season (often slowly away) until producing a better effort in defeat at Brighton (1m2f, good; rider dropped his whip when in front) a fortnight ago; interesting to see how he fares back on the AW from a 1lb higher mark.

Fourth to New London in a Newmarket maiden (1m2f, soft; beaten 8l) last October; placed on all three starts this year, including twice since introduced to handicapping (1m4f, Doncaster); the drop back to 1m2f looks helpful following a break; a noteworthy candidate.
