Form & Verdict

Made stablemate Alafdhal (now rated 22lb higher) pull out all the stops on his first run for Phil McEntee in early November; not built on it since but three of those runs have been 7f and this trip may suit better; usual headgear left off but still one of the likelier types.

Opened AW account at 17th attempt, with dominant success from the front in C&D classified last week; recorded a pretty good Topspeed figure for the grade that day and will take some catching under his 5lb penalty if in similar form again.

Time with Tony Carroll ended on a low but good third in January on second run for new yard before probably failing to stay 9.4f; more severe headgear (blinkers instead of cheekpieces) is given a whirl and he has the rail draw.

Successful at Doncaster in July (6f) but that effort sandwiched between a host of poor runs; did hint at a possible revival when a close fourth over 5f here last week but he wouldn't be sure to back it up.
