Form & Verdict

Well beaten at Newcastle a fortnight ago but he's capable of bouncing back from a poor run and he's run several good races this season, including two wins in a row in the autumn (2m6f/3m7f, good/good to soft) and a solid third at Southwell (3m1f, good) in January; not ruled out.

Needs to produce more than he's managed on his last three starts (all good to soft) but he didn't run badly when third at Musselburgh (3m) last month and perhaps he'll build on that when back on good ground; now 3lb lower than when close third at Carlisle (3m, good) in October; a possible.

This is his first run since last April and it remains to be seen how much ability this 12yo retains; however, he's well handicapped on his best 2020-21 form and he won five point-to-points in the first third of last year; no surprise to see a big run, especially if strong in the betting.
