Comfortable winner of a small-field nursery at Chelmsford (5f, AW) last summer but he has mixed record since; latest 6f Lingfield third (good to firm; beaten just over 4l; reopposing stablemate Irish Dessert a head back in fourth) was a bit more encouraging but he needs to build on that now.

Form & Verdict

Ran well on final star for Tony Carroll and made a winning debut for this yard last week at Kempton (6f), making all; perhaps unlucky not to follow up under a penalty the following day having been forced wide after missing the break; might well make amends from stall 2 if getting away on terms.
