Form & Verdict

A teenager now but was excellent third at Cheltenham Festival (3m2f, soft) in March and won by 18l in lesser company at Exeter (3m, good to soft) the following month; might ideally prefer a stiffer stamina test than this but, nevertheless, he's a major player.

Festival regular having made the frame in the Ultima, a Kim Muir and three editions of this race (beaten 3l by Premier Magic 12 months ago); warmed up for another crack with his sixth point win 12 days ago; however, now a 14yo, his chance of getting his hands on the treasured trophy has surely passed.
