Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo who narrowly made a successful return from 166 days off in a Yarmouth novice (1m, good to firm) a year ago, but was turned over at odds of 2-5 at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) next time; gelded since last seen and the market may be useful on handicap debut after another 11 months off.

Lightly raced 4yo who won a Salisbury novice (7f, good) last summer and subsequently made the frame in all three handicaps, though the trip appeared to stretch him when fourth of seven back at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) on his final outing; half-brother to a couple of AW winners, but he still has stamina to prove returning from 228 days off.
