Form & Verdict

Highly competitive in his three AW handicaps; gelded and cheekpieces added at Wolverhampton last time when upped to 8.6f and he looked likely to finish a close third until hampered very late on; the chief concern is that his only two runs on turf (good to soft) were such heavy defeats.

Debut was much better than his other two AW starts; back to form when 2l fifth of eight off this mark on handicap/turf debut at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) eight days ago and he should have been third at the very least, had he not been hampered over 1f out and close home; one to note.
