Form & Verdict

Never reached the leaders in first attempt on soft ground at Ffos Las last month but had looked a thorough stayer on handicap debut over C&D previously, losing a prominent position early in the straight but staying on stoutly to take a late third behind an improver; interesting back on AW.

Maiden; had a few goes over 2m in 2022, not achieving a lot; however, he ran quite promisingly over 1m4f at Southwell on second start for this yard and although having a tough task against a well-treated one there next time (2m) he did keep on strongly in the closing stages; close up.
