Form & Verdict

Comparatively fresh having raced only three times for new yard this year; last two efforts (1m4f/1m5f) suggest he'll be suited by this new trip; interesting off a handy mark (won off 3lb higher in 2021).

No match for Progressive when second at Kempton (2m, good to soft) in February but drew nicely clear of the others with a next-time-out winner when scoring at Newbury (2m4f, good) last month and a recent 4lb rise does not look excessive; might be the answer.
