Form & Verdict

He had threatened at a modest level before getting off the mark at the 11th attempt at Ffos Las 11 days ago (7.5f, soft), travelling strongly and winning with plenty to spare despite hanging badly left when clear; 5lb rise demands more but he's completely unexposed on slow ground and needs serious consideration.
