Form & Verdict

A shade unfortunate not to make a winning stable debut here 13 days ago and the addition of cheekpieces since has had a positive effect, bolting up at Kempton three days later and then recording another easy win over C&D last week; has a 10lb penalty to shoulder today but quite possible he hasn't reached his ceiling just yet.

In good form here last winter and he ran his best race of this AW campaign when second of 14 over 7f here last week; 2lb ahead of the handicapper and returning to 1m won't hurt; respected.

Scored on stable debut at Kempton (1m) in November and has run well in defeat on Tapeta twice since (1m/8.6f); today's drop back in trip is an interesting move and he helps to give Tony Carroll a very strong hand.

Ended a long losing run when scoring at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) this month and he wasn't beaten far over 7f there three days later; this step back up in trip looks a positive (has won at 1m2f in the past) and he's respected on his stable debut; headgear removed.

Form & Verdict

Three AW wins, one over 1m on Fibresand here in 2020, but his two successes this year have come over 1m2f at Nottingham; solid third over C&D 13 days ago and he's now 14lb better off with runner-up Zealot for less than 2l; more minor money perhaps his best hope.
