Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 3yo who has done well since switched to handicaps in August including two all-the-way wins on the Kempton Polytrack (6f/7f); still open to further progress, but up 4lb in a better race and not sure he will be able to dominate these rivals in the same way.

Front-runner who has been successful in his last three starts on the AW, twice on the Kempton Polytrack (6f/7f) and the latest at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) last month; not totally guaranteed to get his own way again and another 5lb higher, but hard to dismiss in his current mood.

Looked one to follow when scything through the pack to win a C&D handicap in July; things didn't go his way on a few occasions afterwards and he showed his true colours when ridden more positively at Chelmsford in October, rewarding good market support in comfortable fashion; that effort backed up by the clock and there could still be mileage in his mark.
