Form & Verdict

Ran with credit on second start for Andrew Balding and in his three outings for this yard, including on return from four months off when staying-on fifth of nine in Wolverhampton maiden (7f, AW; first start since gelded) 23 days ago; gives the impression there is a bigger effort in him.
