Form & Verdict

Five of his six wins have come on the AW but he's been a model of consistency of late and went down narrowly here last week; that was over 7f but he's fine at 6f and commands respect.

Struggled over the winter but hasn't seen out 7f the last twice and is on a handy mark if he can rediscover his form back on turf (made all when winning off 5lb higher at Newmarket last summer); trainer also saddles Em Jay Kay and Kangaroo.

Suited by the drop back to 6f when producing a strong finish to land a C&D handicap 13 days ago; 7lb rise takes him into new territory from a handicapping perspective but the latest win was backed up by the clock and he has a good apprentice on board; contender.

Still to win after 11 starts but there have been some good runs along the way, including here; wouldn't judge her too harshly on latest Yarmouth run, racing prominently on a day where there was a strong headwind, and she's likely to give her running once again.
