Form & Verdict

Very useful 2yo who, following wind surgery, exploited a much-reduced mark over 7f here in September; has continued to run well the next twice (including second over C&D) and he can give another good account.

Six of his seven wins (three round here) have come over 1m and he wants a good test over this trip; is capable but has lacked consistency in recent times and there's little margin for error off this mark (3lb above his highest winning rating).

Entitled to some respect having won three times on turf this year (1m), most recently at Ayr last month under Brandon Wilkie; however, he has run just once on AW and that was a below-par performance over C&D last October, so he has something to prove on the surface.
