Form & Verdict

Improved when winning at Redcar (1m2f, good) in June on handicap debut; disappointing favourite at York (1m2f, good to soft) three weeks later but he shapes as if worth a go at 1m4f and would be interesting if bouncing back to form.

Still has low mileage; good third in valuable handicap at Haydock (1m6f, soft) last July; not seen again until tailed off at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) this May, a run that may have been needed but he did start 6-4 favourite; well treated if back to form.

Soft ground might have been against him on third start (unraced on good to soft); improved to win a four-runner classified at Nottingham (1m2f, good) in July in clearcut style despite blowing the start; favourite when fair fourth of seven at Newmarket (1m2f, good) on handicap debut, rallying but with Lion Kingdom moving past him; probably vulnerable.

Unraced on softer than good; seven races, peak efforts 1m4f on AW; 589 days off before last season and 407 before this reappearance; has shown he can go well after a layoff; now needs to show he can do it on turf and his final run last term, when looking stretched by 1m6f, gives hope.
