Form & Verdict

Big improver in AW handicaps for new trainer this spring, completing a 7f hat-trick when seeing off nine rivals at Southwell 26 days ago; has to prove that his progress hasn't been totally surface related but he had plenty in hand last time and could still be well treated even after a 9lb rise; likely to stay 1m.

Not out of the first two in four outings over 7f on AW, ending 2022 with a novice win at Wolverhampton; made a solid start to his handicap career when going down by only a neck back there 19 days ago; plenty to like about his profile but the longer trip and turf are unknowns.

Couldn't justify favouritism on his 1m Haydock handicap debut and reappearance, but he did travel comfortably in the lead for a long way and it's possible he'll be sharper for the outing, for all his market strength suggests he was thought to be ready; retains potential for a yard which continues in good form.
