Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 9yo (four runs for this stable); no win in his first 12 attempts over fences but he then scored by 8l at Catterick (1m7f, soft) and followed up in clearcut fashion at Musselburgh (2m, soft) six days later; he's back up another 6lb but on a roll.

Won three in a row under William Maggs at Newcastle (2m4f, good/heavy) this winter and kept on well for third at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) three weeks ago, having lost ground when short of room on the home turn; he's worth a go at this new trip and may well be involved.
