Form & Verdict

Scopey type who improved for the step up to 2m4f when an emphatic winner of handicap debut over C&D, beating unpenalised winner and a subsequent scorer; similar manner of victory at Wetherby since (2m3f; both on good) and although raised 15lb he is still on a lowly mark; big player.

Has come a long way this season and was tackling 3m for the first time when a clearcut winner at Cheltenham (soft) on his penultimate run; this 6lb higher mark seemed to anchor him at Huntingdon (3m1f, good to soft) but again he ran well; solid.

Handily treated on best handicap form at 2m3f-2m5f early in 2022 (good to soft/soft) but he took a bad fall in February and wasn't at his best when last seen 12 months ago; fair to think he'll come on for the run.

Conceding 14lb to White Rhino when beaten 8l by that rival at Southwell earlier this year; has won two of his three subsequent starts and decisively saw off a well-handicapped rival here the last time (2m4f, good; 6lb lower); has to be of interest with Harry Atkins now taking off 10lb, assuming he'll be okay on softer ground (some doubts).
