Form & Verdict

Front-runs; recaptured all his old ability since back from absence, winning twice at 7f on Tapeta and turf on last two starts; cannot dismiss but said to have never travelled when well below best on sole Polytrack start, at Kempton in 2021, and having first run on the surface since.
