Form & Verdict

Lost his way after winning on the Flat in Britain but he divided Laser Focus and Doyenna when fourth at Kilbeggan in April and was nicely on top last time at Down Royal (2m3f, good to yielding); might just be high in the weights now as he's gone up 9lb and Ben Harvey claimed 5lb the last time.

Lightly raced and did well to go so close at Kilbeggan (2m, yielding) given how moderately he jumped and the interference he met with; the winner also got first run; perhaps has his quirks but is up to winning off this mark.

Runner-up in this 12 months ago off only 2lb lower and very respectable in his completed starts since then; lacks a recent run, unlike last year having won his maiden a month earlier, but could be interesting.
