Form & Verdict

Came on for reappearance here in 2022 but improved with virtually every run thereafter and he didn't have to work too hard to shake off the runner-up in a Group 3 on AW in Ireland on final 3yo start; lacks a run and drawn on the flank but on the upgrade and likely to do better again.
