Form & Verdict

0-14 on AW but his turf mark has also edged back down following this year's AW defeats; big shout judged on most of his 2022 turf form (5-23 overall on turf) and last season's cheekpieces return too; one to note.

Goes well in the mud, as shown again when narrowly beaten here (1m2f) last month; return to 1m4f looks fine and, although his overall strike-rate is 2-34, with no win since August 2021, he's a serious each-way contender.

Well held in three turf runs last May-July, none on softer than good; much more competitive when handicapping on AW in the autumn, particularly when runner-up twice over 1m4f, and he may have needed the run (albeit co-favourite) over 1m2f five weeks ago; contender if he reproduces best 1m4f AW form.

Last season was his first, winning a six-runner handicap at Nottingham (1m2f) in August and creditable third at 1m4f/1m2f on his two subsequent starts; those best efforts were on good to firm and AW, with cheekpieces which are now discarded; perhaps best watched on this return.

Without an AW win since February 2021 (1m3f here; on Fibresand) but he has had C&D placings and did score on turf last September; solid sequence came to an end on penultimate start but latest wasn't too bad and he now has a switch from recent cheekpieces to blinkers.

Form & Verdict

Peak turf efforts over 1m4f/1m6f for Tim Easterby give him a major shout; something seemed amiss in both runs over hurdles this February for Syd Hosie but an AW run (hooded first time) for Gay Kelleway four weeks ago showed that significant ability remains; has changed hands and stables since.
