Form & Verdict

Had been luckless but has begun this season well, third at Cork before belated first success here a week ago, staying on well far side when racing alone to beat strong-finishing Shona Mea over 1m; 4lb worse off with that rival here so may struggle to confirm the form over this longer trip.
