Form & Verdict

Found plenty of improvement with his wins over C&D and at Kempton (6f, AW) in the spring; well held in hat-trick bid at Southwell in May but he was reported to have finished lame and this 4yo still has potential after only six starts; in the mix.

Lightly raced 4yo who has found plenty of improvement on AW this year and he made it three wins from his last four starts when scoring at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) in July; that was a narrow success but he still looks feasibly treated off his revised mark and is a big player again.

Began his 2023 campaign with a defeat at 1-9 at Wolverhampton but he ended the year on the up, winning soft-ground handicaps at Windsor (5f) and Bath (5.5f); the last win was backed up by the Topspeed figure and he appeals as the type his yard will squeeze more out from this season; he is conceding race fitness to some in-form sprinters though.
