Form & Verdict

AW winner two seasons ago; gained his first turf win in a Gowran handicap last month; raised 5lb for that and could manage only third behind Simply Sideways at the same venue 13 days ago; that rival is 12lb higher now, so he has prospects of reversing on these revised terms; draw not ideal.

Form & Verdict

Took fifth place on all three starts last season, missed a large chunk of the campaign before running twice in October; won well on seasonal debut at Gowran, with favourite Rock Etoile beaten 4l in third; up 12lb for that, so not guaranteed to uphold that form, draw not ideal.
