Form & Verdict

Something seemed amiss last August on final 4yo run and, following wind surgery, well beaten on first three runs this season; however, he roared back better than ever when running Paradias to a neck over C&D (also the scene of last season's sole win) three weeks ago; back up 4lb but still on a highly competitive mark.

Unraced on softer than good; mostly reliable and progressive; plenty of 1m4f form but back with a bang to win over 1m2f on AW in April; not discredited in the pack for 1m4f handicap at Royal Ascot and going back to 1m2f may suit; further success looks highly likely at some stage this summer.

Has been running consistently well in top turf handicaps all summer and wasn't best served by the drop to 1m1f when not beaten far in the Cambridgeshire latest; has a much better strike-rate on the AW (4-6) than turf (1-16) and needs considering.

Has a modest 1-15 strike-rate on turf but he's run really well in defeat in hot handicaps at about 1m2f on his last four starts (good to firm-good to soft); there can be optimism he'll be fine over a strongly run 1m1f and he's a solid each-way contender.
