Form & Verdict

Won at Salisbury (1m4f, good to firm) in June and solid seconds the next twice (1m2f/1m4f, good/soft); having gone up the weights he was only fourth at Salisbury (1m4f, good) last time but that was still a sound run and he could be thereabouts.

Close third on handicap debut at Newbury (1m4f, good) in August and runner-up to an unexposed winner at Yarmouth (1m6f, soft) a fortnight ago; he could do with settling better and he perhaps didn't find as much as could have been expected last time, but he's still high on the shortlist here.

Prominent throughout when well-backed second on last month's handicap debut at Newmarket (1m2f, good to soft) and not helped by early stumble when in rear throughout at Chepstow (1m2f, good to soft) latest; pedigree provides optimism regarding this longer trip and his trainer won this last year.
