Smart 2yo who suffered with the handicapper as a 3yo; slow start to 2023 too but the combination of a wind operation and a drop into Class 5 company saw him bounce back to form with a 7f win here ten days ago (well backed); looked to have loads in hand there and he'll take some beating if anywhere near that level.
