Form & Verdict

There's a suspicion AW suits best but he's shown some promise on turf and has dropped down the weights; first-time cheekpieces had a positive effect in April and perhaps a visor will do the same today; not discounted.

Handy sort who wasn't at his best in the AW Vase Sprint at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) 13 days ago (hung right off the home bend), but had won three of his four starts prior to that including over C&D last month; still 5lb higher than for that success, but still much respected back here.

Below par at Doncaster on final run for Richard Fahey and sold for 11,000gns since; however, placed three times this season (including on good to soft and good to firm) and his chance is not dismissed on stable debut; visored the last twice, cheekpieces now return (well beaten on sole run in them).
