Form & Verdict

Massive progress last season after joining this stable; won four in a row in a short period, the first off a modest 85; promoted to 137 after fourth win; back over hurdles now after failing to take to chasing as well as might have been hoped; poor hurdles run at Uttoxeter in June is a source of concern, and the trip is a bit shorter than ideal, but should be hard to beat.
