Form & Verdict

Recorded success number 11 at Sandown (1m, soft) last month, but didn't appear to stay when well held back there (1m1f, good) 18 days later; goes well for an inexperienced rider, but still on a career-high mark so more will be needed.

5-27 around here; 6lb higher than when runner-up in this last year and has failed to beat a rival in either start since narrowly beating Dayzee at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) in December; back off the same mark as for that success and has bounced back from a modest effort before, so not easily dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Has only just been denied in his last two starts at Leicester (1m, soft) and Redcar (1m, good); up another 1lb which isn't the end of the world, but his very best form has come on good ground or softer, so he may not want conditions to dry out too much.
